America's Air Forces: Issues and Considerations

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Although recent military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the critical role of America's Air Force in modern warfare, there continue to be robust debates over what America's future Air Force should look like. The Administration has laid the groundwork for defense transformation; now the time has come to execute the plan. Does the Air Force concentrate too heavily on tactical aircraft at the expense of long-range strike capabilities? How will global base restructuring fit into future Air Force requirements?

Please join us at The Heritage Foundation for a discussion by a distinguished panel that will explore the future possibilities for an efficient, effective United States Air Force.
