Title: Temporary Basing

Action: Screen begins with a mercator map indicating the names and geographic locations of the Air Force’s temporary bases.

Voice: To meet these and other contingencies, the Air Force has supplemented its forward bases with temporary basing agreements.

Voice: Because these temporary bases were neither planned for nor programmed into the operating budget, they are operated, manned, and staffed from existing resources. The temporary bases are operated with rotational forces that deploy for 90–120 days. Consequently, these rotational assignments have placed great stress on resources—both personnel and equipment.
