“As the top general in the United States, Gen. Milley is at the forefront of addressing today’s most pressing national security challenges,” Feaver said. “His service for the past 40 years and his current assignment has made him one of the most influential voices in protecting American interests abroad and preparing the U.S. military to meet current and future threats. We are very fortunate he is coming in person to talk with us.”
