Today, I watched our new Chief of Staff take the command of this great and proud organization we call the US Air Force. The stick is now in his hands, I wish him only the best. He has a significant challenge ahead of him, a challenge that the men and women of the Air Force hope he is able to overcome. A recent article in Forbes sums up this challenge pretty well: New Air Force Chief Must Reverse Downward Spiral I have met and discused a few issues with Mr. Thompson before. While I don't agree with everything he espouses in regards to the AF, I have to give him his due here. A good summary of what is a very real issue within our Air Force, the errosion of service's credibility. My sincere prayer Gen Welsh is up for this challenge. Good Luck, Sir! Our AF is counting on you!
