Field Programs


In FY 2018, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill (featuring five presentations a day). Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations.

Although the U.S. is less dependent on Middle Eastern oil than it was, the region remains central to U.S. strategic interests.
