Abstract : The 1990s will probably be characterized as a decade that witnessed the most dramatic and innovative changes in the US Air Force since its formal founding as an independent service in 1947. In some ways, these changes constitute a return to the organizational structure of the Air Force, circa 1947. The contemporary military environment is experiencing significant modifications due to the absence of a clearly defined antagonist, economically driven budget reductions, and the resulting US Air Force organizational restructuring. Current political and fiscal changes have forced a rethinking of how to adapt the Air Force to meet future national defense challenges.
