Day One of AFA's Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition

The 2010 Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition kicked off this morning with a warm welcome from Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Norton A Schwartz to a crowd of more than 1500! Both corporate and AFA-sponsored awards were distributed in our opening ceremony before Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley began his presentation, "Striking a Strategic Balance." His discussion included the challenges associated with an uncertain and fiscally constrained future, describing how the Air Force's ability to succeed in this dynamic future will depend on sgtrategic balance, choice and airmen.

But that's just the beginning. Today, we have a lot of panels and speeches taking place, as well as our ribbing cutting ceremony for the technology exposition at 11:15am, and a book signing with Warren Kozack, author of The Life and Wars of Gen. Curtis LeMay, at 2:00pm.

So check back periodically with the official blog of the Air Force Association to get any updates to this year's conference and expo!
