Thanks for speaking at Wharton Aerospace 2011.

As the (un-named) Wharton Aerospace conference organizer, for anyone who might be interested, but didn't attend our by-invitation-only conference, this URL will take your readers to the framework that provided a common framework for our speakers and panelists:

Just as you write that the armed forces “just haven't figured out what they want to be now that the Cold War is really, really over”, Force Protection has to do the same now that Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom are over. In recent months Force Protection brought on some very smart people like your fellow panelist Bob Johnson to deal with these challenges - and I look forward to reading about it in your upcoming book!
