Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF)


The Reagan National Defense Forum (RNDF) brings together leaders and key stakeholders in the defense community - including members of Congress, civilian officials and military leaders from the Defense Department and industry - to address the health of our national defense and stimulate discussions that promote policies to strengthen the U.S. military.

In an era of economic uncertainty where the threats to our national security are increasing in number and complexity, RNDF allows senior leaders from the defense community to come together with viewpoints on how best to deal with these challenges.

Though President Reagan left office many years ago, the United States military continues to benefit from his commitment and vision for a strong defense. Recognizing that today’s decisions will affect our military capabilities for years to come, RNDF charges leaders from current and past Administrations and Congress to look beyond the immediate issues facing our armed forces and explore how we can build peace through strength for the future.

The RNDF asks you to join the discussion at our third annual conference on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

The Honorable Robert Gates

The Honorable Duncan L. Hunter (Retired)
