The new AFA Breakfast Series: Capitol Hill Edition will address a variety of important topics such as the need to increase and train the necessary manpower to achieve the needed readiness to be an effective force, undertake the advanced research into the weapons and strategies of the future and build our airlifters, tankers, bombers jets and surveillance and reconnaissance platforms to ensure that America is protected into the future.
We will examine all the major USAF acquisition and research and development programs including, JSTARS, the F-35, the F-15, the B-21 the KC-10 replacement and examine the entire range of major USAF conventional and acquisition programs critical to the future of the country's security.
To do that, the Air Force must effectively tell its story to US Congress, to other armed services, to the professional public policy and industry community as well as the media and the public at large. By enlisting senior USAF leadership, we will be able to tell this important story by hosting the nation's top experts in and out of the USAF to speak at our Breakfast Seminars on Capitol Hill.
