Local Military Fairing Well Despite Recession

Local Military Fairing Well Despite Recession
Last week, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates announced a major reshaping of the Pentagon. We explore how cultural and priority changes in the defense department will impact the military in San Diego. And we'll find out who the local military is fairing in this recession.

We are fortunate to have Admiral Len Herring Commander of the Navy Region Southwest and Tom York, Editor of San Diego Business Journal to talk about how how the Navy's place in San Diego's economy is expanding.
