military working dog for Carl Buhler article

Today, March 13, 2019 is National K9 Veterans Day. According to National Day Calendar, “National K9 Veterans Day is celebrated on March 13th on the official birthday of the US Army K9 Corps, which was formed in 1942.  Joseph White, a retired military working dog trainer, originated the idea for the day.”

Every day, around the globe, veteran Military Working Dogs perform a variety of roles to keep others safe and to help execute a variety of missions. Some of these military working dogs are honored throughout their career with retirements and awards, but today is a great day to recognize the service of all military working dogs.  One way to recognize military working dogs today is to use the #NationalK9VeteransDay hashtag.

National Association of Corporate Director’s ‘From Battlefield to Boardroom’ Course

NACD logo for article by Brig Gen ret Carl BuhlerRecently, I was able to attend the National Association of Corporate Director’s (NACD) “From Battlefield to Boardroom” course.  Simply put, it was fantastic.  As one of over sixty retired, or soon-to-be retired, flag or general officers, I learned an enormous amount about corporate boards.

According to NACD, this course was “its eighth annual Battlefield to Boardroom event, a board development program designed to prepare retired and soon-to-retire military flag and general officers to serve in the boardroom.”  NACD added “Speakers addressed topics ranging from the roles and responsibilities of corporate directors and board members’ fiduciary duties to more complex issues related to the oversight of strategy, risk, and cybersecurity; committees; and board/shareholder engagement.”

Additionally, attending the course was a great opportunity to reconnect with friends I served with over the last three decades, plus an opportunity to meet new friends and associates.  My interest in board membership definitely increased as a result of attending …and I look forward to attending more NACD courses and events.  For more details on NACD and this course, please visit NACD’s article.

35th Annual National Logistics Forum

NDIA Logistics Forum article by Carl Buhler

The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) recently announced their 35th Annual National Logistics Forum.  The Forum will be held in Tampa, Florida at the DoubleTree Tampa Airport – Westshore, between 10 and 11 April 2019.  The theme for this year is “Logistics in an Age of Great Power Competition.”

Hosted by NDIA, this year’s forum is expected to have over 300 defense leaders attend from across government, industry and the Armed Services.  NDIA is a non-partisan, non-profit, educational association that “drives strategic dialogue in national security by identifying key issues and leveraging the knowledge and experience of its military, government, industry, and academic members to address them.”  Additionally, NDIA has over 1,600 corporate and 85,000 individual members.

According to NDIA, the National Logistics Forum is designed “to provide the opportunity for industry and government stakeholders to engage in candid dialogue about the issues and challenges of maintaining global military readiness and to place and sustain forces where necessary anywhere in the world.  The theme, Logistics in an Age of Great Power Competition, reflects the increasingly critical role of readiness and sustainment when facing the rise of near-peer competitors.

The “National Logistics Forum brings together senior government and industry logistics policy officials and practitioners to address current challenges facing the delivery of logistics capabilities and services in the current and future severely resource constrained environment. The event highlights significant challenges in maintaining our military force readiness in the face of a rapidly changing threat and declining state of force availability” stated 10 Times.

NDIA offers a few key reasons to attend, such as:  “Expansion – Learn and understand the shifts taking place that respond to changing missions and the opportunities those create.  Networking – With more than 200 senior government and industry policy officials and practitioners attending, this forum is the best place to network. Engagement – Discuss and debate with national and international attendees and various logistics management experts.”
