(OPEN):
"BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON"
--WHICH IS CELEBRATING ITS 100TH ANNIVERSARY--IS CONDUCTING "THE 'SMART COMMAND' TOWN-HALL SERIES"--WITH SUPPORT FROM "GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE MEDIA GROUP'S 'DEFENSE ONE'".  ITS FOCUS IS ON PUTTING INNOVATIVE, INTEROPERABLE TECHNOLOGIES INTO THE HANDS OF THE ARMED FORCES MORE RAPIDLY, EFFICIENTLY, AND COST-EFFECTIVELY.  SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT, RENE CASTRO--WHO LEADS THE FIRM'S CHARLESTON-BASED U-S NAVY- AND MARINE-CORPS-BUSINESS FOCUSING ON "COMMAND, CONTROL, COMMUNICATIONS, COMPUTERS, INTELLIGENCE, SURVEILLANCE, AND RECONNAISSANCE", OR "C-FOUR-I-S-R"--HAS MORE...
