Air Mobility Command hosted Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown, Jr., as well as senior leaders from eight major commands, at Fall Phoenix Rally at Scott Air Force Base, Nov. 17, where a cohort of strategists and planners unveiled a winning scheme of maneuver that will position the joint force to win in a potential high-end fight. 
The nearly 200 attendees, which included total force mobility command teams and spouses, also explored how air mobility is critical to joint integration and logistics in a contested environment. The theme of the presentations was clear: mobility is the primary consideration. AMC will be how the joint force gets to the fight and sustains the fight. 
“The reason we’re here is to have a conversation,” said Gen. Mike Minihan, AMC commander. “We’ve had to do the intellectual pushups to deliver a winning scheme of maneuver for our Airmen to win. I hope it never happens, but if it does, it will be the worst decision the other side ever made. And it will be [the Mobility Air Forces] the joint force will look to.” 
The command’s recently-completed competition campaign plan aligns its activities on the road to Mobility Guardian next summer along three lines of effort: deterring adversaries from aggression, assuring partners, and maximizing capabilities and readiness in order to close connectivity, survivability and agility gaps. 
During his opening remarks, Brown commented on the significant accomplishments of AMC over the last year. 
“When I think of all the things that have occurred … coming out of Afghanistan, bringing the KC-46 [Pegasus]online, all the support for Ukraine, and setting up for [exercise] Mobility Guardian – that’s a lot to get done in a year,” he said, also highlighting trusting and empowering Airmen as key to those successes.
