Lt. Gen. David Barno, Visiting Scholar, American University

Acting Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Brad Carson calls the military’s personnel system “almost Soviet” because of how rigid it is. He will deliver a new plan to Defense Secretary Ash Carter by Aug. 19. Retired Army Lt. Gen David Barno is a distinguished practitioner in residence at American University. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he says if anyone can drive progress in DoD’s personnel system in the year and a half the administration has left, it’s Brad Carson.
