Abstract:

Two decades of continuous operations that began with Desert Shield Desert Storm 1990-91 and continued to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq have resulted in Airmen engaged in responding to current operations, leaving little time to contemplate the longer-term strategic imperatives that will influence the future force structure of the United States Air Force. With Operation Iraqi Freedom recently coming to an end and troop reductions in Afghanistan scheduled to begin this year, it is both timely and appropriate to reinvigorate strategic thought within the Air Force. This article seeks to stimulate a discussion concerning the Air Forces future by addressing a single question What critical capabilities -through combatant commanders lenses- will the nation require of the Air Force by 2030
