Lt. Gen. Mark D. "Shack" Shackelford, USAF (ret.) served as the Military Deputy in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, and was a participant in JINSA's Generals and Admirals Program in 2012.

JINSA’s Generals and Admirals (G&A) Program takes influential, recently retired American generals and admirals to Israel and Jordan each year for an intensive nine-day program of briefings on Israel’s security situation and the critical role Israel plays as a strategic partner of the United States. The delegation meets with senior Israeli military and political leadership, including:

• The Prime Minister;
• The Foreign Minister;
• The Minister of Defense;
• The IDF Chief of Staff; and
• The Director of Mossad.

Upon their return, program participants brief policymakers, Members of Congress and their staffs, the media, and key community leaders about the lessons they learned in Israel.

Light hors d'ouevres will be served.

We encourage you to bring a guest.
