AFA Breakfast Series:
Capitol Hill Edition

The AFA Breakfast Series on Capitol Hill addresses 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 examine all the major USAF acquisition and research and development programs including, the F-35,  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 U.S. 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 are 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.

Space is a warfighting domain just like air, land, and sea, Raymond told the breakfast, and, “The way we operate in warfighting domains is we operate with our partners and with our allies, and we’re going to do the exact same thing in space.”
