The first presentation of the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series for CGSC academic year 2021 was conducted Oct. 6, 2020, in Marshall Auditorium in the Lewis and Clark Center on Fort Leavenworth. Mr. Roderic C. Jackson, the Defense Intelligence Chair and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Representative to the Combined Arms Center and Army University, led a discussion about the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is one of our nation’s least understood intelligence organizations.

  1. I applaud the use of technology in offering the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series to those not in attendance at Fort Leavenworth.

    As a SfL member and an alum, I strive to remain current as an unofficial ambassador within my Department.

    The use of video will allow those in satellite schools and other alum to take advantage of the brown bag lectures.

    I look forward to the rest of the CGSC AY 2021 Brown Bag Lecture Series.

    • Rick,

      Thank you for your support! We’re proud to partner with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College to present this series.
