Episode 107: Changing the Zero-Sum Victory with Chris Kolenda
NSI welcomes retired U.S. Army Colonel Chris Kolenda for an in-depth discussion on his recently published book, "Zero-Sum Victory: What We're Getting Wrong About War", and the larger issue of how the U.S. military measures success. What is a zero-sum victory? How do we define sustainability of an insurgency? What are the flaws with how the U.S. military currently measures success?Chris concludes the podcast by describing his Fallen Hero Honor Ride, a bike ride spanning 1,700 miles to visit the gravesites of the six paratroopers from his unit who were killed in action in Afghanistan. Chris is fundraising to create scholarship endowments in the names of each of the six fallen soldiers; these scholarships will support education, trade, and developmental expenses for paratroopers, family members, and descendants of the unit (TF SABER and 1-91 CAV, 173rd Airborne) and veterans, as well as disadvantaged youth from the Milwaukee area.Clickherefor more on Chris’ project.If you would like to donate to Chris’ project, please visit itsGoFundMe.Like what we’re doing here?
