BGen Roger Turner has commanded in combat at the platoon, battalion, regiment and “Task Force” levels.  He visited with renown national security commentator Michael O’Hanlon of The Brookings Institute.  BGen Turner is as smart as he is tough and his comments are interesting in general as an update from the Helmand Province and specifically (1) “advising and supporting” a partner in a way which ENABLES a partner and doesn’t undermine and (2) “advising and supporting” in a way that is fiscally supportable by the DOD in the long-term.
