After years of shrinking the force, the Army is suddenly in growth mode again, creating new challenges for recruiters. Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow, the commander of Army Recruiting Command talks with Jared Serbu about the increased mission for 2017 and 2018. Later, Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel Dailey joins us to talk about possible new incentives for soldiers to keep themselves "deployable" -- in other words, physically fit.
The Defense Department has survived the first protest of its JEDI Cloud contract. But there's at least one more - and mostly likely several more - still to come. Lauren Brier, an associate attorney with The Federal Practice Group joins us to talk about the legal issues involved in the protest Oracle filed, and why losing bidders might have more luck challenging the procurement after an award is made.
Later, Jim Langevin (D-R.I.), the presumptive incoming chairman of the House Armed Services subcommittee on emerging threats and capabilities joins us to discuss his oversight and legislative priorities for the new Congress.
