“The Middle East: A General’s View,” hosted by Mehmet Gurses, Ph.D., an associate professor of political science at FAU, will provide an overview of the security situations in Syria and Iraq based on personal insights from General Audino’s own experiences.

He attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, and holds a master’s degree in national security and strategy from the U.S. National War College, as well as a Master of Law and Juris Doctorate from Vermont Law School.
