EVENTS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS 17 Association of the United States Navy than the outlier." Dr. Wong, Ph.D., came in from California to lend his insight — his Ph.D. dissertation in policy analysis explored the role of rapid acquisition in Operation Iraqi Freedom. "Rapid acquisition of new military capabilities was a military necessity during recent operations and is one of the most promising routes to realizing the new tech- nologies needed to enable the ird Offset," Wong said. "I have researched it for the past five years, benefitted personally from it as a Marine infantryman during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and I am excited about its potential for giving our troops an additional edge over the enemy." Mike Little, AUSN's Legislative Director, recently completed his review of the NDAA, and said that "deciding which legislation to support is always a chal- lenging subject, but at the end of the day, what matters is what's best for our Sailors. It's great to have discus- sions like this about how to bring better technology to make their jobs more efficient." Rapid Acquisitions has the CNO's support and personal attention, and AUSN is hopeful that the positive impact for the Sailors at the deckplate level continues to grow along with this new approach to bringing technology to the Fleet! AUSN is also grateful to our headline sponsor WBB, and our other sponsors who supported this important event: Lockheed Martin, USAA, Capital Bank, GP (GovPredict), and the Consilio Group.
