Why IWP commemorates Pearl Harbor Day

As we reflect on the lessons of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the intelligence community must remain ever vigilant in our pursuit to uncover the unknown. The nature of global conflict is increasingly ad-hoc requiring an agile and educated workforce to take the lessons of history and apply them to future challenges.

DIA Director LTG Michael T. Flynn will discuss the imperative for a new model for defense intelligence to prevent strategic surprise and provide decision advantage to warfighters and policymakers. He will speak to the rapidly shifting security landscape, addressing global trends like population growth, urbanization, and technological developments that are creating new security challenges. In this strategic context, LTG Flynn with highlight wartime lessons learned that demonstrate the growing importance of intelligence integration and form the foundation of DIA’s way ahead to ensure defense intelligence continues to provide the information needed to maintain U.S. strategic advantage.
