Force structure—which includes the allocation of personnel, equipment, and weapons—is one of the most important and overlooked components of military readiness. With rising threats abroad, the US military needs to maintain a force structure that allows it to project combat power whenever and wherever it is required. 

Please join Jon Askonas, a military scholar and assistant professor of politics at the Catholic University of America, and Hudson Media Fellow Jeremy Hunt for a conversation about the state of our military’s force structure and what it means for our national security.
