The world is changing; our Nation is changing; and our Services are changing. At EAST: Joint Warfighting 2013, active duty professionals have a say in how the profession of arms will change. This three-day professional development event allows active duty military, government, industry and academia to collaborate on the key issues critical to defense and have the opportunity to engage on multiple levels to help set the agendas for future operations, training, and force structure. Keynote speakers and local command leaders will address the overall theme Innovation in an Era of Austerity: What Capabilities Do We Need to Operate in a Non-Permissive Environment?
