Military leaders discuss operations during Pacific region air boss conference 

Military leaders from the U.S. and the Republic of Korea gathered June 13 and 14 to discuss airpower strategies in the Pacific region.

The bilateral air boss conference is an annual conference that combined 120 leaders from the U.S. Air Force, Marines, Army and ROK to make up the air component team covering a wide range of topics relevant to airpower in the theater of operations, explained Lt. Gen. Jan-Marc Jouas, the 7th Air Force commander.

Jouas and Korean air force Lt. Gen. Park Shin Kyu, the ROK Air Force Operations Command commander, led the conference and provided opening remarks.

“This is truly a great team we have here,” Jouas said. “You can take a look around the room and see there are a lot of people who were here before (last year) and some that weren’t. But this is about building this team in 2012.”

The conference brings together commanders from around the Pacific, and they work on how to divvy up forces during a potential crisis or conflict. Another goal is to network and understand allies who would be working side-by-side in a combined environment.
