U.S. Interests in the Middle East: A Commanding General’s Perspective


Wed, 04/13/2016 - 12:00pm

On April 13th, Commonwealth North is proud to host General Joseph W. Ralston (USAF, Ret.) to speak about the rapidly changing events in the Middle East and the implications on U.S. foreign policy. General Ralston retired in 2003 after a distinguished 37 year career in the United States Air Force.

General Ralston served in the nation’s second highest-ranking military position as Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He also served as Commander of US European Command and Commander of NATO. His experience brings a unique insight into developing effective foreign policy by understanding the individual leaders, history and economy of Middle Eastern nations.

General Ralston also commanded the Alaskan Command and the Alaskan NORAD Region. Register online at www.commonwealthnorth.org or RSVP to (907) 566-2396.
