Rapid Fire 2011-09-16: LCSP Memo | SAC FY12
- Leadership. At last. As USMC Sgt. (then Cpl.) Dakota Meyer receives the Medal of Honor, a follow-up report affirms that his compatriot, Army Capt. William Swenson, has now been submitted as a Medal of Honor candidate for his own actions at the Ganjigal engagement. Thanks to Afghan theater commander Gen. John Allen (USMC!). In fairness, we should also note that 2 of the officers who refused Swenson’s fire support calls are looking for new lines of work now. Video embedded below.
- Britain’s GBP 30 million upgrade of its CVR-T light tracked combat vehicles has been fielded in Afghanistan.
- America’s Office of Naval Research has a new conflict of interest policy in place for contractors.
