    “Being a FAO, I utilize my LREC skillset along with operational relevance to engage with our bilateral partners regularly; but you don’t have to be a FAO to do that.

Soft power skillsets will be vital to our lethality and ability to winning future wars," LEAP Scholar and FAO Maj. Logan Barlow said.
