HONOLULU — “Land Forces: Assuring Security and Stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific” was the theme of the second Land Power in the Pacific Symposium and Exposition, as the military rebalances forces with focus on the Pacific region.

Building partnerships throughout the Pacific and supporting the warfighter were topics of discussion during the expo at the Sheraton Waikiki, here, April 8-10.

Hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army’s Institute of Land Warfare, with participation from the U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. Army-Pacific and several major supporting commands on Oahu, the symposium brought senior leaders of the military and industry together to discuss current trends and explore viable solutions for the Asia-Pacific theater.

Retired Gen. Gordon Sullivan, AUSA president, opened the symposium with remarks on the importance of land power in the Pacific.

“The U.S. military has been in the Pacific region for well over 100 years,” he said. “More than six of the world’s most powerful military forces are in the Pacific.”

Maj. Gen. James T. Walton, commander 311th Signal Command (Theater), spoke on a panel discussion during the LANPAC symposium, an international event highlighting the role of land forces in the Asia-Pacific Theater in peace and war.

Walton also participated in the “Communications Interoperability and Reliability During Contingency Operations” discussion chaired by Maj. Gen. Roger F. Matthews, USARPAC deputy commanding general.

Other panel members included Lt. Gen. Robert S. Ferrell, U.S. Army Chief Information Officer/G6 and Rear Adm. Nancy A. Norton, U.S. Pacific Command, director for command, communications, and cyber (J6).
