Former Congressman Marty Russo attends the Honolulu Leadership Dialogue for the American Australian Leadership Education Foundation.
It was a very interesting experience to travel to Oahu to join in the high level discussions about defense related issues that jointly face Australia and the United States.
The meetings included a full day off site at PACOM and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Field where we received briefings on defense and national security activity and plans as well as a tour of the many impressive features of the base.
I was deeply impressed by the professionalism of our military and civilian leaders. Here’s a photo gallery and commentary on some of the highlights.
