“A lot of times at AFSAC we have the responsibility for executing international affairs-type activities across the command, but we don’t necessarily have the authority to do it,” he said. “This additional position now gives me the authority to do various international affairs activities across the command.”
He went on to add that his top priorities are meeting command intent and ensuring there are adequate resources command-wide including facilities and people to carry out international activities.
“We are going to work with Gen. Bunch [Gen. Arnold W. Bunch Jr., AFMC commander] to ensure we are aligned with his priorities for the command and are executing things from an international perspective that meet his intent,” said Bruckbauer. “As you know, our foreign military sales are increasing at a rapid rate. Increased sales impact the command and that’s important to him, our Air Force and country, so getting it right is important.”
