Former Air Force CIO Lauds AFCEA's Role in Protecting the Nation

Lt. Gen. Michael Basla, USAF (Ret.), spoke at the June chapter luncheon. Gen. Basla, senior vice president and U.S. Air Force client executive at CACI International, which sponsored the luncheon, praised AFCEA as a professional organization and strongly encouraged nonmembers to join. He made a generous personal donation for anyone at the luncheon to do so. He thanked the local community of soldiers, Defense Department employees, contractors and their families for the sacrifices they make in the fight against U.S. adversaries. Gen. Basla not only presented a history of AFCEA but also explained how collaboration between the government, industry and academia has contributed to more effective methods, technology and weaponry to prosecute the many conflicts the country has faced in the 70 years since AFCEA was established. AFCEA is crucial to the development of technologies, including cyber. Through coursework, training and networking, the brightest and best share ideas and collaborate to keep the nation safe.
