The Air Force Special Operations Command released its Strategic Guidance in concert with the 2020 AFA Air Warfare Symposium.

According to AFSOC, this document is Lt Gen Jim Slife’s focus while he is in command to transform the enterprise into the “AFSOC We Will Need” for tomorrow’s fight. It’s main theme throughout is “People” because he believes that our AFSOC Airmen – officers, enlisted, and civil servants alike, are AFSOC’s competitive advantage.

Lt Gen Jim Slife said in a memo to all of AFSOC:

“It [the new Strategic Guidance] will induce short-term institutional turbulence, require us to question long-held assumptions, and compel us to make the difficult choices necessary to our transformation.”
