Abstract:

The National Security Strategy, 1997 Quadrennial Defense Review, National Military Strategy, and Joint Vision 2010 call for certain military capabilities. These capabilities will provide the National Command Authorities NCA options when pursuing U.S. interests. While the current Air Force structure is able to fulfill the requirements of these various documents, the Air Force is restructuring itself. The Air Force is reorienting itself to a more expeditionary force. The Air Expeditionary Force AEF will provide the NCA a rapid reaction force. The Air Force is beginning to revise its doctrine to incorporate the AEF. Across the spectrum of conflict the AEF is a valuable option for the NCA. The AEF is credible force for the present and the future.
