1st Signal Brigade hosts "All Things Pacific" Week
USAG YONGSAN, Korea ---- As part of the focus on the Pacific, the 1st Signal Brigade hosted an "All Things Pacific" week Oct. 7-9 at USAG Yongsan to review the current and future state of signal capabilities, practices and projects in the region.
Senior leaders from across the signal world were in attendance to participate in the project status review (PSR) hosted by Maj. Gen. Lawrence Brock, commander, 311th Signal Command, and Col. Arvesta Roberson, commander, 1st Signal Brigade. Maj. Gen. John Morrison, commander, Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM), Maj. Gen. Alan Lynn, Vice Director, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and various senior signal leaders with vested interests in the acquisition and prioritization for communications capabilities gathered at the Dragon Hill Lodge to discuss the way ahead for the Pacific Theater.
The "All Things Pacific" event was the first of its kind held in the Pacific and Maj. Gen. Brock chose to host the event in South Korea. His goal was to assemble the major stakeholders that had the ability to identify solutions, re-prioritize assets from other theaters, and commit to a synchronized and phased solution. The group was able to walk away with a better understanding for the transformation efforts taking place on the peninsula and how critical the communications architecture is to the 'warfighting" commander's objectives and priorities. The added benefit of hosting the PSR in South Korea was the Combined Forces Command (CFC) C6, Brig. Gen. Song, presented a discussion on the current Combined Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) challenges impacting the Korean and U.S. warfighting networks.
