Title: Doctrine

Action: The following text bullets appear when mentioned in the narration:

Voice: Air Force doctrine is a body of central beliefs representing a distillation of best practices concerning the employment of air and space power. It guides the employment of air and space force capabilities in support of national objectives. Doctrine is generally derived from past experience, but written with an eye toward future changes. Although authoritative in nature, doctrine is a guide—not a prescription—and requires judgment in its application. Based upon history, experience, exercises, war games, and critical analysis, military doctrine describes the best ways to employ forces to accomplish military goals.
