"Our essential tasks are to save lives, mitigate human suffering, and facilitate recovery

operations for our state and local partners," U.S. Army Lt. Col. Robert Cunniff, Future Operations Planner for U.S. Northern Command told us today on the DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable. "It is important to understand the Dept. of Defense and more specifically U.S. NorthCom operates in support of a primary agency and success in our Commander's eyes is measured at the state and local level," Cunniff added.

Lt. Col. Cunniff and U.S. Army Col. Lou Vogler, Chief, Future Operations U.S. Army North joined us for a discussion of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high-yield Explosive Consequence Management Response Force capability developed for Defense Support to Civil Authorities.

On the call with us was Jason Sigger of the Armchair Generalist, John Donovan from Castle Argghhh!, Toby Nunn of Toby Nunn's Briefing Room, and CJ with A Soldier's Perspective.
