The release of the National Defense Panel's analysis of the Quadrennial Defense Review is just a few weeks away. That panel is Congress' independent review board for the QDR. Nora Bensahel is senior fellow and co-director of the Responsible Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security. She was a guest for Pentagon Solutions on In Depth with Francis Rose. Her latest work is titled "Beyond the QDR: Key Issues Facing the National Defense Panel." She says the QDR doesn't break much new ground, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

In the military, combat experience helps you climb the career ladder. The lack of it can set you back. As the United States enters what is believed to be an era of peace, what does that mean for young cadets' job prospects? Will they be relegated to second-tier jobs behind those who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan? Army Lt. Gen. David Barno (Ret.), a senior fellow and co-director of the Responsible Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security, explained the promotion system to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
Robert Work will return to the Defense Department for a third tour of duty. He was in the Marines for 27 years and served almost four years as undersecretary of the Navy.
A new report, called the Department of Everything, says DoD spending over the next 10 years will total almost $68 billion on non- military goods and services. Some recent examples include a smartphone app to help military members manage their caffeine intake and the sponsorship of a workshop by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency called the 100 Year Starship project, which included a session called, "Did Jesus die for Klingons too?"
Some 250,000 service members leave the military each year and all must attend counseling on finances and other issues whether they served six years or 26 years, whether they saw the battlefield or not.
Brian Burton, a Bacevich Fellow at the Center for a New American Security, explains what State did right and where it could improve its QDDR.
Karen Evans is the Director of the US Cyber Challenge. And the former E-gov administration.
