The Air Force's Air Combat Command is stressed, but is still able to provide military capabilities combatant commanders need, ACC's commander said.
"Are we stressed? Yes," Air Force Gen. James M. "Mike" Holmes told the Defense Writers Group yesterday in Washington. "But are we able to meet the things our country is asking us to do? Yes."
ACC is the largest command in the service, operating around 1,000 aircraft in 35 wings at 300 locations worldwide. The command has 159,000 military and civilian personnel, and its headquarters is at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.
