General Mark Welsh III on American military strategy in a time of declining resources

General Mark Welsh III on American military strategy in a time of declining resources

With sequestration likely to remain law throughout this year and beyond, the US Air Force finds itself in a "ready today" versus a "modern tomorrow" dilemma. How will the Air Force balance capability, capacity, and readiness in the coming years? What is the future of key modernization initiatives such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, the KC-46 aerial refueling tanker, and the long-range strike bomber? Moreover, what lessons has the Air Force learned from past debates that will influence upcoming budget proposals? In the concluding session of its series with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies will host General Mark Welsh III, Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, to address these questions and more.
