WACSC Presents our June Program
With Colonel Peter Frank
The war in Ukraine has impacted nations world-wide. Among these is Germany. Has its security been compromised? Its defenses challenged? And what should its posture be vis-à-vis the U.S. and the European Union?
On June 23 WACSC is honored to host Colonel Peter Frank of the Germany Army, and Military Professor at Naval Postgraduate School at Monterey, California. His topic: Germany, Russia, Ukraine and the World: What Next? In a broad-ranging talk, Colonel Frank will give us a perspective we haven’t had – that of a major U.S. ally a mere 224 miles from the Russian border.
Colonel Frank received his M.A. in Business and Administration from the Bundeswehr University, Munich in 1990 and is a graduate of the German Armed Forces General Staff Course, Hamburg in 2000. From 2010 to 2012 he was a Military Assistant for the German Under Secretary of Defense, involved in the most senior level decision-making.
Watch for more on this all-important program coming before long!
