Scuttlebutt Ep 34: Bringing ACVs to Marines, Talent Management, and Top Gun with Col Hough

Col Tim Hough fills in for Vic this week behind the big microphone at Scuttlebutt, and joins Nick and Nancy as they explore the practical effects of Force Design and Talent Management. As one of the key Marines facilitating Amphibious Combat Vehicles to units, Col Hough talks about working with contractors, both at home and in Europe, and applies his decades of Corps experience to dig into the future of talent management and recruiting. Talking about recruiting, we look at the impact the original Top Gun had for the Navy and touch on some other movies that have been used to recruit for the military over the years.

The views and opinions expressed on Scuttlebutt are those of the individuals and do not reflect the official position of the Marine Corps Association.

Produced by Nick Wilson, Vic Ruble, William Treuting, and Nancy Lichtman.
