GENERAL ROBERT BROWN: SECURITY IN THE INDO-ASIA PACIFIC
In recent years, the Pacific region has garnered attention related to international security, with hot spots such as North Korea and the South China Sea looming large in the public mind. Since 2016, Gen. Robert Brown has overseen the U.S. Army's largest service component command. Headquartered at Fort Shafter, Hawaii, with portions of the command forward deployed and based throughout the Indo-Asia Pacific, 106,000 active, reserve soldiers and civilians support the nation's strategic objectives and commitment to the region.
Brown will discuss the current security dynamics in the Pacific from the perspective of land forces throughout the region, with emphasis on the centrality of leadership and the U.S. Army's emerging concept of multi-domain battle.
Prior to this command, Brown most recently served as commanding general at the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. He also served for 12 years with units focused on the Indo-Asia Pacific region and was deputy commanding general of the 25th Infantry Division, which included a second deployment to Operation Iraqi Freedom. Brown holds a bachelor of science from the United States Military Academy, a master of education from the University of Virginia, and a master of science in national security and strategic studies from National Defense University.
