AF Director of Security Forces attends Air University Press Book Launch by Air University Press, Air University Press, 20 May 20 2019 Volume 2 of Defending Air Bases in the Age of Insurgency fills in some of the gaps from the first book and brings in the perspective of some notable general officers, Air Force Office of Special Investigations agents, Security Forces officers, Army infantry Officer and member of Airlift community. Air Forces top defender notes the relevance of Air Base Defense to the entire service community and its criticality to airpower itself. Brigadier Gen. Andrea Tullos, Air Force Director of Security Forces and deputy Chief of Staff for logistics, engineering and Force protection, made those observations at Air University Press Book Launch for volume 2 of Defending Air Bases in the Age of Insurgency, May 14 2019, here. We know that airpower projections start on the ground, she say. Air Base Defense is everyones responsibility. They were all defenders, and in today's environment there are no sanctuary areas for airpower. ABD is an inflection point for the new National Defense Strategy. It is a foundational point for me. It not only timely but timeless. Tullos, former 42 Air Base Wing commander, identified the Air University community as key driver in elevating issues to Chief of Staff of the Air Force through its scholarly examination of topics affecting airpower projection and Force readiness, also pointing out that today's leaders learn here what makes the US tick through deep learning, critical thinking and writing. Books editor and coauthor, retired Col. Shannon Caudill, built volume 2 from the work of students participating in yearlong Air Command and Staff College Research elective he taught on counterinsurgency and Base Defense, which was in partnership with the Air Force Historical Research Agency. I use my time at Air University to reflect on my experience in Iraq and want to help the next generation of Airmen better prepare themselves for counterinsurgency and strategic changes occurring in today's operational environment, he say. Four of the students in Caudills ABD seminar were pilots and operators from F-22, F-15, F-16 and-10 communities. They understand and appreciate that, as operators, they would very likely become responsible for Defense of Air Base in future, he say. Their selection of this elective and writing, Caudill add, also reinforce the important point that Defense of Air Bases is a critical component of airpower itself and that ABD is not a parochial interest of Security Forces. Coauthor retire Col. Bill DeMarco, ACSC faculty and who stand up one of the initial Air Mobility Command contingency response groups, note that his chapter was Base on his School of Advanced Air and Space Studies Research paper. Volume 2 fills in some of the gaps from the first book and brings in the perspective of some notable general officers, including retired Maj. Gen. Thomas Deale, former vice Director for Joint Force development, Joint Staff; Maj Gen Bradley D.
