Rousseau has a bachelor’s from the United States Military Academy, a Master of Science in Strategic Intelligence from the Defense Intelligence College, a JD from the George Mason University School of Law, and a Master of Military Art and Science from the U.S. Army Advanced Strategic Leadership Studies Program.
All lectures in the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series are free and open to the public. Normally attendees are welcome to bring their own lunches into “brown-bag lectures,” but this particular lecture is being conducted in the Eisenhower Auditorium in which food/drink are not allowed.
Members of the public coming to the lectures from off-post will need to add extra time to check-in at the Fort Leavenworth visitor center. – For gate information, see the Fort Leavenworth homepage.
