Abstract : The AF Military Construction (Milcon) Program is an extremely important entity in the Department of Defense. It specifies the requirement for revitalizing and building new facilities, and seeks adequate funding through proper channels to maintain the physical plant in warfighting condition. Today AF facilities are at risk. They are not being revitalized and replaced when needed, but continue to deteriorate and become obsolete. Congress, the Department of Defense, and the Air Force are failing to provide adequate funding. The situation is critical and requirements far exceed resources (funding). Therefore, it is important to analyze and discuss this issue and implement a solution as soon as possible. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the impact, in terms of its affect on people and the mission, and identify alternatives and solutions to this serious issue.
