McLean, Va — Veteran defense reporters Brendan McGarry and Kris Osborn joined the news team in March, adding to an editorial staff known for its quality reporting and comprehensive analysis of military issues such as defense acquisition and defense technology.

His work has been published in The Washington Post and Bloomberg Businessweek, among other publications, and he has served as a defense expert for numerous television and radio networks.

Osborn joins the team after serving at the Pentagon as a Highly Qualified Expert/Information Liaison for the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology.
