Olsen Luncheon NYC

BENS Texas hosted former CENTCOM Commander General Frank McKenzie, USMC (Ret.) for dinner and luncheon. Since retiring last year after 42 years of service, General McKenzie has served as the Executive Director of the University of South Florida’s Global and National Security Institute. Conversation over dinner was wide ranging and we discussed current political military events. The next day, General McKenzie’s remarks were very forward looking on the future of warfare.

BENS NY members welcomed Major General John Olson, the mobilization assistant to the Chief of Space Operations, last week. They discussed the Space Force, data, and artificial intelligence.
