Military leaders gathered virtually with the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance to discuss their roles in global missile defense and in the defense of the nation during a roundtable June 23.

Lt. Gen. Daniel Karbler, commander of Space and Missile Defense Command and commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense, joined leaders from U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, and the Missile Defense Agency to discuss the role of current and future air and missile defense during the discussion on “Global Missile Defense Responsibilities.”

“Everything we’re working at is making sure the generation close to 2020 gets the best air and missile defense capabilities to keep everybody safe,” Karbler said. “I appreciate you inviting me to be on the global missile defense responsibilities forum today.

It can’t just be a pickup game.”

MDAA, a private, nonprofit organization, advocates for the development and deployment of missile defense systems to defend the United States, its armed forces and its allies against missile threats.
