A Discussion with LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges
On Monday, July 15 CEPA hosted a discussion with CEPA's Pershing Chair in Strategic Studies LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges. The conversation was moderated by Peter B. Doran, CEPA President.
During the discussion, LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges discussed a variety of issues currently facing the transatlantic relationship, including Turkey's recent purchase of the Russian S-400 system, the implications for interoperability, Chinese investment and what it means for the economic and political stability for the West, and the importance of military exercises as a tool not only to enhance U.S. and European security, but also a means to strengthen transatlantic bonds on the ground.
