Abstract:

Its great to be in Colorado Springs, Colo., the home of our Space warriors as well as one of the most beautiful, militarily supportive towns in America. My family and I are delighted to be here, and proud to be serving the Space community at a time that will one day be regarded as one of the foremost times of strategic and technological change in our history. Just take a look around--we are restructuring our defense department and combatant commands, defining new acquisition paradigms that enable us to respond to warfighting needs in real time, fielding the first global missile defense weapon systems and deploying Army space warfighters to all levels of a newly designed Army. We are serving amongst some of the finest leaders of our time, and most of them are young lieutenants and captains learning their trade in troubling, difficult times that require a sense of agility not seen in the years before them. You are Americas Space pioneers, laying out the groundwork for those who follow. We encourage you to serve with passion, tenacity, and a technical and tactical knowledge that surpasses that of your previous assignments. You are part of a new generation of Army leaders that are learning our craft at the cutting edge in one of our most challenging geo-political and technically complex environments. So, the question is what are we going to do to set the conditions for your success in the future
