Dr. Maren Leed, Senior Adviser, CSIS

A few years after then-Defense secretary Robert Gates put the Marine Corps' variant of the F-35 fighter on "probation" because of poor performance, the Marine Corps is optimistic about the plane's future and the rest of the aviation portfolio. That's the message the service's top aviation official delivered to the Center For Strategic And International Studies yesterday. Dr. Maren Leed, senior adviser at CSIS, hosted the event. She tells Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu the Marine Corps' aviation programs are looking healthier than most other areas of weapon system acquisition in DoD.
