“We have a responsibility to lead and advance the integration of the joint force to achieve excellence,” Gen. David Allvin wrote in his first letter to airmen since becoming Air Force chief of staff. “The future holds ambiguity, but our task is clear: we must now follow through.”

Allvin listed eight areas where he wanted to see the Air Force follow through, including “on the changes our airmen and their families expect and deserve. Changes worthy of their commitment and sacrifice and suited to fulfill the oaths we take on service of this nation.”
