The U.S.-Japan Alliance is the most important source of security and stability for Japan and the entire Indo-Pacific region. While this is a common understanding within Japan, we rarely have an opportunity to understand how the U.S., especially its military leaders, views the alliance relationship and considers its role in the region.
We are extremely honored and fortunate to welcome the Commander of the U.S. Army Pacific, General Charles A. Flynn to Asia Society Policy Salon Tokyo. He will provide his views on U.S. Army activities in the region, the role of the network of Allies and Partners, and the importance of the U.S.-Japan Alliance.
General Charles A. Flynn assumed command of the United States Army's largest Service Component Command, U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC), on June 4, 2021, headquartered at Fort Shafter, Hawaii. Previously, he served as deputy chief of staff for Army operations, plans, and training at the Pentagon. He has served in a variety of command, staff, and leadership positions from platoon leader to division commander with many of these key positions in the Indo-Pacific Theater. He is a graduate of the United States Naval War College with a Master's Degree in National Security and Strategic Studies and a graduate of the Joint Advanced Warfighting School (JAWS) with a Master's Degree in Joint Campaign Planning and Strategy from the National Defense University.
