Description
 
This article takes the form of a fictional speech given by a senior Air Force officer to the Air Command & Staff College’s (ACSC) class of 2017. In his presentation, the officer (himself a grad. of the class of 2007) conveys several warnings & historical perspectives, including personal opinions formed in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 11 Sept. 2001 & Operation Iraqi Freedom. Two simultaneous trends inside Am.’s military culture -- its increasingly domestic role & its growing reliance upon defense contractors -- illustrate considerable fundamental differences between uniformed military personnel & their commercially oriented counterparts. Employing a future scenario, Author Maj. Bryan D. Watson, USAF, contends that growing civilian influence over formerly military endeavors will likely lead to serious trouble over time. If that is true, America’s long-term ability to project combat power may ultimately falter as well. Illus.
