AF releases new ‘vision’ document

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Air Force released a new Vision document outlining the force’s vision and way forward.

“Focused on ‘Airmen, Mission and Innovation,’ I believe this short document captures what today’s Air Force is all about and where I think we ought to focus on for tomorrow,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III in an email to all Airmen.

“We are the greatest air force in the world because of our Airmen — Active, Reserve, Guard, and Civilian — to remain the greatest, we must make our team even stronger,” the Vision states.

The Vision discusses the Air Force’s enduring contributions of air and space superiority; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; rapid global mobility; global strike; and command and control and the need to strengthen them.

“We already combine our air, space and cyber forces to maximize these enduring contributions, but the way we execute these five calling cards must continually evolve as we strive to increase our asymmetric advantage,” the Vision states. “Our Airmen’s ability to rethink the battle while incorporating new technologies will improve the varied ways our Air Force accomplishes its missions.”

“Every Airman should constantly look for smarter ways to do business. The person closest to the problem is often the one with the best solution. Leaders should empower Airmen to think creatively, find new solutions and make decisions,” according to the Vision.

The Vision concludes with a call to action for all Airmen to tell their story, being proud of who they are, what they do and how well they accomplish the mission.
