Three Air Force Materiel Command personnel—one military and two civilians—will be attending the University of Tennessee’s Aerospace Master of Business Administration program, which is in its second year and in its first year as a USAF sponsored program, say AFMC officials. The Air Force acquisition office believe the program offers “a large payback” with minimal time away from work. The three airmen are: Maj. Wade Jense, Odgen Air Logistics Center, Hill AFB, Utah; Roshelle Orgusaar, Air Armament Center, Eglin AFB, Fla., and Mary Lou Robinson, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. The program starts in January.
The U.S. supports “a stronger and more capable” European defense, Defense Secretary Lloyd J. Austin III said during an Oct. 22 press conference in Brussels—but that defense should not duplicate the functions and capabilities of the NATO alliance.
