Major General Tod Wolters Will Be The Guest Speaker
The Air Force Association's Mitchell Institute for Airpower Studies welcomes Major General Tod D. Wolters, former commander of the 9th Air and Space Expeditionary Task Force-Afghanistan, as the guest speaker for an upcoming Mitchell Hour. He will discuss Air Force and NATO air operations in Afghanistan.
Gen. Wolters (pictured in official USAF photo) is currently the Air Force Director of Legislative Liaison. The directorate is the contact between the Air Force and Congress on issues such as legislative and constituent inquiries, programs and weapons systems. He was previously commander of the 9th Air and Space Expeditionary Task Force-Afghanistan and Deputy Commander for Air, US Forces-Afghanistan. For a year in that role, he led more than 9,000 airmen across three Afghanistan-based air wings. He will provide his perspective on the successes and limitations of US and NATO airpower in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
The session will be held Tuesday, August 14, beginning at 0930 EDT at AFA's national headquarters in Arlington, VA, next to the Key Bridge Marriott. The presentation will be in AFA's fourth floor boardroom.
All Mitchell Hours are free and open to the public.
The Mitchell Institute for Airpower Studies is an independent, non-profit research, studies, and analysis organization founded by the Air Force Association. It takes its name from America's most famous and arguably greatest airman, Brig. Gen. William Mitchell. The Institute seeks to carry on, in the modern day, General Mitchell's tireless and dedicated effort to expand airpower thinking and increase public awareness of the need for this unique military instrument.
