The article presents information on the United States Naval Institute's tenth annual Joint Warfare Atlantic Exposition and Symposium that was held in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The symposium kicked off with a keynote address by Lieutenant General David W. Barno, U.S. Army, the former commander of Combined Forces Command in Afghanistan, who discussed how the lessons of the war in Afghanistan were that joint warfare and counterinsurgency are the new methods of battle. Barno explained to a packed auditorium how he helped alter the tactics of joint U.S. forces there, in part by giving commanders long-term "ownership" of regions, instead of sending them out on short-term missions.
