Hey all: With these recent budget cuts, changing global communities, and ever changing attitude towards the U.S military, I was curious if anyone has any insight on the the current long term goals for our United States Air Force. Besides the clearly stated mission of "..fly, fight, and win..in air, space and cyberspace." I believe these are very confusing times for anyone wishing to enter any of their respective service academies in order to serve a specific role in our military. Personally, my dream has always been to become a fighter pilot in our Air Force. I know that the chances of this becoming a reality, due to the dwindling numbers of fighters needed,are fading but I will fight for my opportunity with everything I have. I am curious to know if this may turn around in the future. If anyone has any insight on the specific direction our Air Force is currently taking I, along with many other future American warriors, would greatly appreciate it!
