Air Force Breakfast Program. This event will be held on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.
Lt. Gen. Carlisle spoke at the September 2011 session, honing in on the responsibilities and challenges of his department.

As the Air Force Operations Deputy to the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he determines operational requirements, capabilities and training necessary to support national security objectives and military strategy.
