Bilingual and Bicultural Advisors in OIF/OEF with Ken Fortune

About this Podcast...
Ken Fortune, Chief Operations Officer of Linc Government Services, discusses the importance of cultural advisors and linguists in OIF and OEF. These critical personnel bridge the gap between east and west and are fundamental to the coalition forces in achieving objectives to have clear communication with the local populace.
