Been a rough few for our AF comrades in arms and while we well remember all the grief we received when the tables were turned back in ’92-93 we note with interest the items below passed our way earlier today.Â Couple of bullets caught our eye – things like:
“…build a balanced force for the future – no litmus tests”
“If Navy is the Gold Standard, we will emulate” (referring to the nuclear issues)
“Enhance AF support to Joint operations Force with a specific emphasis on air-ground integration and ISR”
“Ground forces have primacy in this fight”
“Not limited to what we like doing, what we’re good at or where it fits our rhythm as a Service”
“Never unzip your zipper in public”
“You will deal with politics…but you must remain apolitical…now and in retirement”
“We will be devastating on poor performers and personal misconduct”
Interesting when juxtaposed with this item ‘Phib highlighted today.Â But then, when you’re cut from a different bolt of cloth, and especially one the likes of this, perhaps the enclosed shouldn’t be so surprising.
” ‘Everyone contributes’ – no one has greater value to our collective mission than another”
Interesting that there wasn’t any CAC-enforced rectal temperature taking/finger in the wind poll-taking on this one.
