Nearly 100 warfighters met last week at a three-day seminar to discuss what the Army of 2020 will look like.

As operations wind down in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army and all warfighters must prepare to shift gears and enter a new era. The "How the Army Fights" seminar is part of Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno's study of the future force called "Unified Quest."

Col. Kevin Felix, the chief of the Future Warfare Division at the Army Capabilities Integration Center, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the seminar and the virtual training available for troops at home.

Felix also discussed how commanding officers are preparing for a shift in focus — from the Middle East to the Asia-Pacific region — as announced in a new defense strategy.
