Day 1: A Matter of Trust
From the WikiLeaks scandal to border security, the key theme of TechNet Land Forces South day one was that in the interagency environment, trust is a critical element of success.

Day 2: Budget Cuts Dominate the Future Defense Landscape
Several themes emerged during the second day of TechNet Land Forces South in Tampa, Florida, but the most dominant topic was the budget. Lt. Gen. Bradley A. Heithold, USAF, vice commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), discussed the implications the funding cuts will have on special operations forces (SOF). As one of the people involved in drafting the new budget, he assured the audience that every choice was made carefully with focus on critical objectives.

Day 3: Working Together in (Something Like) Perfect Harmony
Coalition and interagency partners have a lot of hard work ahead of them if they want to operate better together in the future, but with the right attitudes enabled by the best technology, the way ahead has plenty of promise.
