Paul McLeary writes Odierno said at a Washington think tank that the Army is discussing the Global Strategic Landpower Network approach with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, according to the report.

Odierno also told the think tank that he is collaborating with U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh on a close air support agenda as the military intends to replace the legacy A-10 ground attack jet, the report says.
