On December 11, 2017, General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, participated in a dinner discussion with Senators about national security issues. This program is led by Senators Dan Sullivan and Gary Peters and brings together top leaders from the military and Senators, most serving in their first term, as part of the Stennis Center’s ongoing Civil-Military Leadership Program. The Dialogue and Discussion Program provides meaningful opportunities for military and civilian leaders to engage in dialogue and build relationships that increase awareness and understanding of issues.
