Class of 2007 Session Overview

“The Seminar XXI Program is first class in every way. The analytic problem solving skills and personal interaction with other students from across the U.S. Government, as well as several non-governmental organizations, has proven tremendously valuable for a professional military officer thinking through the complex security issues facing our country.”
BG Mark A. Milley, USA Deputy Director for Regional Operations, Joint Staff, J-3
