Only for stars in the Milky Way is it currently possible to examine both the three dimensional kinematics and composition of a central bulge/bar population, offering a unique laboratory for the study of galaxy formation and evolution. I will present new results from the BRAVA spectroscopic survey of giants in the Galactic bulge, and highlight how this database constrains dynamical models of the Galactic bulge and the formation of the Milky Way Galaxy.
