In the 30th episode of Battle Rhythm, Steve and our guest co-host, Alvine Nintai discuss her time as CDSN’s first official staff member, the retirement of announcement of General Jon Vance, and troop reduction in Iraq and Germany. We have an emerging scholar interview this week with Maj T.J. Kelley [24:00], discussing his paper “Correlation of Military Trade with Selection of General and Flag Officers.” which was short-listed for JCSP 46, the Brigadier-General George Bell Medal in recognition of commitment and excellence in military writing as displayed by a student on the Joint Command and Staff Programme.
