Abstract:

Each service is struggling to validate its respective role in the current era of military mission uncertainty. Decreased Department of Defense budgets have forced each branch of the military to redefine its mission, capability, future focus in order to compete for money and support national strategies. Each service is leaning to an expeditionary airpower capability in order to rapidly respond to the full spectrum of crisis in order to protect our national interests. If each service is developing or currently possesses an expeditionary airpower capability, then what differentiates one services capability from the next Why should each service maintain an expeditionary airpower capability at a time when money is scarce This study is important to determine if each service has an expeditionary airpower capability and why that is important for national security.
