Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress
A frequent critic of defense spending and advocate of the need for reforms, particularly military pay and benefits, Korb is a thought leader. A retired Navy captain who became assistant secretary of defense for manpower, reserve affairs, installations and logistics during the Reagan administration, he has argued the downturn in defense spending is a normal correction after a decade of increased budgets and can be managed by DoD with careful thinking and planning.
