“Vast distances and few areas to use as supply nodes … all potentially during a period of competition.” That is how Royal Air Force Air Commodore Jez Attridge described the task at hand in the Pacific as moderator of a mobility panel discussion at the Air and Space Forces Association 2023 Warfare Symposium in Aurora, Colorado, March 7.

The panel, titled “Logistics on the Attack,” was a conversation about the buildup and sustainment of materiel necessary to “set the theater,” featuring Gen. Mike Minihan, commander of Air Mobility Command, and Gen. Duke Richardson, commander of Air Force Materiel Command — the two leaders with the most skin in the game for the successful delivery of logistics effects.

Richardson began by highlighting his charge to address integration across the logistics enterprise.

“Both the level of the threat we are facing and the idea of how we are going to answer it through a distributed laydown of forces really drives the need for integration,” he said.
