WMMOA was pleased to welcome LTC Chris Wellman, the Professor of Military Science at the University of Montana ROTC program to discuss the US Army’s Modernization Program at our January luncheon. LTC Wellman brought great depth as a trainer and leader in his insights on the challenges facing the Army as they attempt to leverage technology on the future battlefield. LTC Wellman discussed soldier initiatives, weapon system enhancements and multi domain operations of land, sea, air, space and cyberspace. The challenge for military leaders is to have the vision to develop new technologies, procure new equipment and train soldiers to maximize capabilities. Change is never easy but to quote General Eric Shinseki, Army Chief of Staff; “If you don’t like change, you’re going to like irrelevance even less”.
