SAME hosts JEOC session at Ft. Leavenworth
On April 17, 2013, SAME sponsored a two-hour session and evening reception at the week-long Joint Engineer Operations Course (JEOC), held at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. The evening reception also included a dinner at Leavenworth to provide opportunity for attendees to discuss issues involving the government’s employment of contractors in the AOR.
Entitled Contractors on the Battlefield, the course detailed how design, construction and other services are provided on the battlefield. Having been deployed numerous times, many attendees asked specific questions about what they had seen based on their own experience. Sixty-two students attended the session.
Col. Nicholas L. “Nick” Desport, USAF (Ret.), F.SAME, Deputy Executive Director and Director of Programs, SAME, moderated while Col. Charles “Stoney” Cox, USA (Ret.), Versar, and Col. Peter Rowan, P.E., USA (Ret.), CH2M Hill, served as panelists.
