by Bill McRaven and Michael McCaul

Bill McRaven, a retired Navy four-star admiral who served as commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command from 2011-2014 and former chancellor of the University of Texas system from 2015-2018, and Congressman Michael McCaul, who represents the 10th District of Texas write that global hunger is a major national security concern. A generation of hundreds of millions of malnourished, and physically and cognitively, stunted adults contributes to instability and fragility.
