Air Force Global Strike Command is dedicating 2017 to Airmen, their loved ones and the total force at large and will focus on areas that greatly affect their quality of life. These areas include they live, learn, play, pray and receive care. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Rebecca Van Syoc)
Air Force Global Strike’s mission also plays a role in these five areas. Gen. Robin Rand, commander, Air Force Global Strike Command recently discussed the increase in operational tempo and how this may result in increased burdens for service members and their families.
At any given moment, our Airmen are in four different combatant commands around the world deterring bad actors and striking our nation’s adversaries. They have also played a role in stopping trans-national crime. If anything is certain, we are not getting any less work. That is one of the reasons why this effort is so important. We have to make sure that our Airmen are not overburdened and that their families are well taken care of.
Air Force Global Strike Command will work to eliminate or minimize these burdens. Our Airmen are working around the clock and around the world to assure, deter and strike our nation’s adversaries. They deserve the best, something our command will work to make significant progress in “The Year of the Family.”
