BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The Chief of Staff of the Air Force, General David L. Goldfein, recently met with members of Team Beale to receive a first-hand look of the continual progression made to maintain and supply readiness to our air and space superiority Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2017, at Beale Air Force Base, California.

Goldfein’s visit included a display of the persistent strides made by the U-2 Dragon Lady and RQ-4 Global Hawk, the innovation of building Team Beale’s rising leaders, the elevated training of the 9th Security Forces Squadron, the Distributed Ground System flow of critical intelligence data to combatant commanders and an all call he hosted to deliver the Air Force’s priorities and his goals for Airmen.

“Our goal is to have a balanced approach, to be prepared against conflict in the Middle East and future threats,” Goldfein said. “This is our job, yours and mine, to be prepared to deliver an optimal and executable force.”

In order to accomplish this approach, Goldfein has three focus areas to enable success. Those are revitalizing squadrons, strengthening joint leaders and teams, and advancing multi-domain, multi-functional command and control.

His visit showed him first-hand the innovation of command and control, the building up of leaders with the creation of the Flight Leadership Course and what the squadrons are doing to become more effective and efficient.

“As we go forward in the future, Beale is leading in these efforts,” Goldfein said. “What I have seen here is exactly what we need to have that balanced approach to conflict.”
