Abstract : What do Joint Vision 2010, Army Vision 2010, Global Engagement, and Operational Maneuver from the Sea all have in common? Besides being the epithets of the military services, they all require military forces to be lifted to some place on the globe to support our National Military Strategy. The air arm providing that lift falls under the once mighty wings of the Air Mobility Command. Although our strategic leaders espouse that the U.S. military can fight anywhere, anytime they fail to add, as long as we have the airplanes, enroute structure, and multinational support. Unless we take a serious look at our dwindling air mobility capabilities and take some positive proactions, we will no longer be able to support the National Military Strategy.
