    • ·         Didn’t attend the NDTA Fall Mtg in St Louis last week in person, esp once I found that the keynotes would be posted to DVIDs. Listened to Gen Van Ovost's keynote in real time; she discussed high-level mission topics most of the time. But she does answer a few interesting questions in the Q&A. In addition to mission understanding, you might be just as interested to listen from a concerned citizen perspective bc she addresses Ukraine topics as well as cyber threats (high-level) from our well-known adversaries.
