Please join AFGSC and NDIA for the 2017 Air Force Global Strike Command Innovation & Technology, Breaking Barriers and Leading Change…Strategic Deterrence and Global Strike in the 21st Century, November 13-15 at the Shreveport Convention Center in Shreveport, LA.
The symposium is part of the culmination of Global Strike Challenge, an annual event where the top security forces, maintainers, and missile and bomber crews compete to be recognized as the "best of the best" in their fields. Competition began in May, and ran through the summer.
Teams from the command's nine wings, as well as the Air Force Reserve and Air Combat Command, will arrive in Shreveport-Bossier City for the symposium and official score posting and awards ceremony.
Airmen fulfill vital roles in strategic deterrence and their mission to maintain safe, secure and effective nuclear weapons. While other military units often make their mark during times of war or major military campaigns, the general said, the Airmen of AFGSC use strategic deterrence to help prevent another world war from taking place.
Global Strike Challenge concludes November 15 with a traditional score posting (by invitation only) and trophy presentations at Barksdale AFB.
