GAO Insights into Air Force’s Role in National Defense

The GAO today published a new “WatchBlog” of interest to defense acquisition workforce members today entitled “For the U.S. Air Force’s 75th, We Look At Its Role In National Defense And How It Can Maintain Its Edge In the Aerial Battlefield”.

According to the post, this “Sunday marks the 75th Anniversary of the U.S. Air Force. Established by the Department of Defense on September 18, 1947, the Air Force has played a critical role in our national defense and has also become integral to American air superiority with its fighter jets, bombers, and advanced technologies that will shape the battlefields to come. In honor of the Air Force’s anniversary, today’s WatchBlog post looks at how the Air Force maintains that air superiority, including incorporating leading technologies, and our work on the challenges it could face in these efforts.”
