  • Top Air Force Leader to Speak at Heritage

    America’s ability to secure its vital national security interests is intrinsically linked to the capabilities of our Air Force. As the joint enabler, the Air Force’s core capabilities, such as air dominance and strategic lift, serve to enhance the capacity of the entire military. However, the Air Force is at a crossroads, given austere budget constraints that are forcing its leadership—and ultimately all airmen—to accept even greater risks. Despite a looming fighter gap, along with an aging bomber and tanker fleet, President Obama intends to end production of the F-22 Raptor and delay the next-generation bomber program. Air Force modernization simply cannot be delayed any longer.

    The Heritage Foundation is pleased to host Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz this Thursday at 11:00 a.m to discuss the Air Force mission and American security priories. To hear General Schwartz’s insights on the Air Force’s enduring contributions to national security, please RSVP online. Light refreshments will follow the event.
