ORLANDO, Fla. (AFNS) — The 2017 Airlift/Tanker Association Symposium, held Oct. 26-29, 2017 in Orlando, focused on readiness, joint operations, multi-domain tactics and innovation to further develop the 125,000 mobility Airmen.

The symposium featured multiple key note speakers from the Air Force and across the Defense Department who focused on this year’s theme of “Mobility Airmen, Ever Present: Agile, Innovative and Ready to Roll.”

Under Secretary of the Air Force Matthew P. Donovan’s opening address highlighted efforts currently underway to increase Air Force capabilities and grow capacity and readiness for the future.

“You are all the backbone of the American way of war,” Donovan said. “For decades the United States has relied on the global, strategic and theater mobility that you provide. You give our nation one of its greatest strategic abilities, the ability to quickly project power anywhere across the planet.”
