Air and Space Warfighters in Action

The AFA virtual speaker series, Air and Space Warfighters in Action, features fresh perspectives from the operational forces. Like our Capitol Hill Breakfast Series, Air and Space Warfighters in Action will feature speakers with the same caliber you have come to expect, but with greater variety. We’ll still hear the word from the top Air Force and Space Force leaders in Washington, but look for more insight from the operating forces across the nation and around the world.
