In this episode of MWI’s Urban Warfare Project Podcast, John Spencer is joined by Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel Hendrex. When the conversation was recorded, he was serving as command sergeant major of the 3rd Infantry Division. He has since become command sergeant major of III Corps and Fort Hood, Texas.

In 2014, Command Sgt. Maj. Hendrex was a member of the Chief of Staff of the Army’s Strategic Studies Group. During that assignment, he was a member of a megacities concept team that researched the Army’s preparedness to conduct operation in megacities. In the conversation you’ll hear in this episode, he discusses his research on the subject of megacities and the unique perspective he brought to that research based on his experience as a senior enlisted leader in the Army. The discussion also covers the Army’s general preparedness for combat in dense urban areas, especially what is necessary to train for, equip units for, and conduct operations in megacities.

The megacities report discussed in this podcast can be found here.
