Title: Summary

Action: The background changes to reflect the services as they are mentioned in the narration. The following bullet points are shown overlaying the changing backgrounds:

Voice: Each service requires the use of air and space power to perform its mission. The Army’s conduct of decisive land combat relies heavily on the freedom of action, mobility, fire support, and information dominance provided by air and space forces. For the Navy, air and space power is a key instrument in achieving battlespace dominance and projecting power ashore. The Marine Air-Ground Task Force is a combined-arms team that consists of air and surface elements functioning as an integrated whole. Since air and space power is critically important to each of the services, each service desires to maintain at least some degree of control over it. Even though the individual services have differing views concerning the best way to employ air and space power, all agree that it’s a necessary ingredient for successful military operations.
