We’ll Be There

We’ll Be There: Long after the Army leaves Iraq, the Air Force will still have to be there, providing close air support and air defense, Air Force Secretary Wynne told the Capitol Hill seminar, echoing remarks made last year by Gen. John Jumper before his retirement as Air Force Chief of Staff. Wynne said that USAF would still be in Iraq and Afghanistan for many years, patrolling the skies almost constantly. That means, too, that USAF battlefield airmen likely would remain in country.
