Speaking during Thursday’s Veterans Day observance at the James Leroy Belk American Legion Post 17 home in Camden, Col. Robert G. Young said America is likely to see decades of “persistent conflict.” Young is strategic plans officer, U.S. Army Central Command, in Kabul, Afghanistan. The three-decade military man said globalization, technology, population growth paired with limited resources and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction are significant factors that will shape conflicts in the coming years.
