Washington, DC – Building personal relationships — whether with lawmakers, with state governors or with political and military leaders of nations engaged in the war on terror — is just as important, sometimes even more so, as the ability to project force, Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. John F. Campbell said on August 1st.
Campbell spoke during a farewell media roundtable at the Pentagon. He departs for Afghanistan later this month as the next International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces Afghanistan commander.
