AFCEA-NC Chapter May Luncheon

The North Carolina Chapter of AFCEA had a special luncheon on May 10 at the Iron Mike Conference Center at Ft. Bragg. Our special guest speaker was MG Mitchell L. Kilgo, J6 Director, Headquarters United States Central Command. General Kilgo assisted Paul Reimers, Chapter President, BG Todd Isaacson of FORCSCOM and Kayla Thiesen, Chapter Scholarship Chairperson with the presentation of $2000 scholarships to Antonio Capelo, Angelina Neiberger, Cassidy Long, Harper Long, and Christian Pierce.

He then spoke on the challenges presented by the joint environment among our military as well as our coalition partners. Even though the technology would allow for 95% accessibility among these, policy determines what can be shared and those policies are rigid and difficult to change. Change is unable to move at the speed of operations. Risk management is the critical and should be managed by command rather than policy makers.

We sincerely appreciate General Kilgo’s participation. It was good to have him back home at Ft. Bragg.
