On Pentagon Solutions, an hour-long look into challenges facing the Defense Department both inside and out of the building, we listened to highlights from an event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Participants examined DoD’s Operational Energy for the upcoming decade as military branches restructure and draw down in the Middle East.
Maren Leed moderated the event. She’s senior adviser for the CSIS Harold Brown Chair in Defense Policy Studies and Ground Forces Dialogue. The main speakers were Sharon Burke, assistant secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs and Lt. Gen. Robert Ruark, director of logistics for the J-4 Joint Staff.
