Spring may be barely peeking through the clouds and fall sure seems a long way off, but our friends at the Association of the U.S. Army are giving us a little relief from the winter doldrums.
The AUSA Winter Symposium and Exhibition kicked off today in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., with an impressive roster of Army brass, senior program managers and top defense firms displaying their wares, outlining the latest program milestones and briefing industry and the media on future plans. Its smaller than the annual AUSA conference in Washington, DC, but its no less entertaining and the intimacy can produce a lot more insight without the pressure from the crush of vendors, throngs of media and gaggle of political poobahs.
Its a fascinating place to be. But for those of you (like me) who couldnt make it this year, AUSA is kindly putting together a daily update of top news and views from the conference. Keep an eye on what the Armys senior officials say as the conference plays out through Friday.
