CSIS hosted the first Military Strategy Forum of 2012. This year, in addition to our usual series of distinguished speakers, we will focus on the defense budget and the impact of the drawdown. We are pleased to welcome General Norton A. Schwartz as the first speaker in our Defense Budget Series of the CSIS Military Strategy Forum.
