Lt. Gen. Jim Slife, commander of the Hurlburt Field-headquartered AFSOC, addressed many issues including the new training approach at the online meeting with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. After the training deaths in 2019, AFSOC suspended all training operations until they were reinstated after an internal review. Slife explains what they had found “had created an environment where our units were so busy getting ready for the next thing that they weren’t paying attention to basic blocking and tackling.” With the national defense strategy changing, the future of training overview looks far different from the current methods.
