The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) brings together leaders and key stakeholders in the defense community, including members of Congress, civilian officials and military leaders from the Defense Department and industry, to address the health of our national defense and stimulate a discussion that promotes policies that strengthen the US military in the future. In an era of fiscal austerity where the threats to our national security are increasing in number and complexity, the RNDF will allow senior leaders from the defense community to come together with viewpoints on how best to deal with it. Though President Reagan left office many years ago, the United States military continues to benefit from his commitment and vision for a strong military. Recognizing that today’s decisions will affect the military’s capabilities for years to come, the RNDF will charge leaders from current and past Administrations and Congress to look beyond the immediate issues facing the military and explore how we can build a strong national defense for the future.
