Title: Evolution of JFACC Concept

Action: Cycle through a collage of images representing doctrine from the WWII era through today.

Voice: We’ve discussed the organization and command of today’s air and space forces and the role of the COMAFFOR in presenting Air Force forces to the JFC. We’ve also mentioned the JFACC, a functional component commander who controls all air and space forces in a joint force. The JFACC is a relatively recent addition to joint doctrine but the concept of the JFACC has been around since the dawn of airpower. To better understand the role of and issues surrounding the JFACC, a look at the history behind the JFACC concept is important.
