The Mitchell Institute for Airpower Studies
Invites You to Attend the
April 11th Mitchell Hour
Looking to the Future: Discussing National Security Priorities with General Ron Fogleman (Ret)
General Ronald Fogleman (Ret), 15th Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, will address the Mitchell Institute regarding future security variables that air-minded leaders should consider in a period defined by budget austerity and evolving national interests.
In the years prior to serving as Chief of Staff, General Fogleman instructed student pilots, performed combat duty as a fighter pilot and high-speed forward air controller in Vietnam and Thailand, taught history at the Air Force Academy and conducted flight operations in Europe -- including duty as an F-15 aircraft demonstration pilot for international air shows. He later commanded an Air Force wing, an Air Division, a numbered Air Force, a Major Command and a Unified Command. Since retiring from the U.S. Air Force, he has chaired an Air Force Laboratory study on directed energy weapons and a National Research Council Committee on Aeronautics Research and Technology for Vision 2050: An Integrated Transportation System. He served on the NASA Mars Program Independent Assessment Team; the congressionally directed Commission to Assess United States National Security Space Management and Organization; the NASA Shuttle Return to Flight Task Group; the NASA Advisory Council; the Defense Policy Board; and another congressionally directed Independent Assessment Panel examining the Organization and Management of National Security Assets in Space.
This breadth and depth of experience promises a thought-provoking discussion with General Fogleman. We hope you will be able to join us.
