In this edition of the Bulletin, we have begun a new feature titled Feedback From the Field which will include letters to the editor or articles that do not fit into the normal Bulletin flow. The first letter provides insight on Task Force FALCON in Kosovo from someone who participated in the mission. The second item deals with steps being taken within USTRANSCOM to improve their lessons learned program. The next two articles are summaries of GLOBAL ENGAGEMENT GE exercises. GE 98 Evolving the Expeditionary Aerospace Force provides insights captured during the exercise and the conclusions drawn. In the GE IV 1999 summary the reader can track some of the insights gained in GE 98 and see them incorporated in the GE IV exercise. Lessons From Combined Rules of Engagement is reprinted here from the October 1999 edition of Proceedings magazine. It discusses challenges and lessons learned associated with ROE in multinational joint operations. There are also recommendations for improving the planning and execution of these operations. The next article, Air Operations Must be Joint originally appeared in the Spring 95 Airpower Journal and was selected as an Ira C. Eaker award winner. In the article, the author discusses the need for joint doctrine and the Joint Force Air Component Commander JFACC system in the employment of joint air operations. A list of JFACC lessons learned from the current Lessons Learned database is provided for further study, if desired. Our last article discusses Risk Management for Joint-Level Exercises and provides lessons during BRIGHT STAR 9900. Many safety lessons are provided for planning in the different exercises phases.
