WOSC Lisa Greenlee
WOSC's Lisa Greenlee attended the National Security Forum at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala.

Western Oklahoma State College's vice president for academic and student support services, Lisa Greenlee, received and accepted a personal invitation from the Secretary of the Air Force to attend the 58th Annual National Security Forum (NSF) at the Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. The purpose of NSF is to expose influential citizens to senior U.S. and international officers and civilian equivalents in order to engage each others ideas and perspectives on Air Force, national and international security issues.

During the week of May 16-20, approximately 120 civilian leaders in business, education and government from all over the U.S. met with senior military leaders to explore current and future national security issues. The NSF provides a great opportunity for an open and candid exchange of ideas among these guests, senior military and civilian leaders and the Air War College students. Greenlee attended lectures, met in seminars for in-depth discussions and participated in several social events.

The Air War College is the senior professional development school in the Air Force officer education system as a part of Air University. The college educates selected senior officers to lead at the strategic level in the employment of air and space forces. The curriculum focuses on coalition war fighting and national security issues, with emphasis on the effective employment of aerospace forces in joint and combined combat operations.

Air University is a major component of Air Education and Training Command and the intellectual and leadership center of the Air Force. Air University's eight colleges and schools provide the full spectrum of Air Force education, from pre-commissioning to the highest levels of professional military education, including degree granting and professional continuing education for officers, enlisted and civilian personnel throughout their careers.
