February Session To Focus On 5th Generation Fighters
The Air Force Association is pleased to announce Lieutenant
General Herbert J. "Hawk" Carlisle, Deputy Chief of Staff for
Operations, Plans and Requirements, as the guest speaker for the
February session of AFA's 2012 Air Force Breakfast Program. This
event will be held on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, from 0700-0900
EST at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.
Lt. Gen. Carlisle spoke at the September 2011 session, honing in
on the responsibilities and challenges of his department. However,
at this month's session he will be focusing on 5th Generation
Fighters (F-22 and F-35) and their roles in terms of national and
global security as they struggle with delays and setbacks in a
tense budget environment.
Lt. Gen. Carlisle is responsible to the Secretary of the Air
Force and the Chief of Staff for formulating policy supporting air,
space, irregular warfare, counterproliferation, homeland security,
weather and cyber operations. As the Air Force Operations Deputy to
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he determines operational requirements,
capabilities and training necessary to support national security
objectives and military strategy.
The Air Force Breakfast Program is a monthly series that
provides a venue for senior Air Force and Department of Defense
leaders to communicate directly with the public and the press. Past
speakers include Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley,
Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, Gen. Gary
L. North, Commander of Pacific Air Forces, and Gen. Donald J.
Hoffman, Commander of Air Force Materiel Command.
