2. United States Air Force FY 2014 Budget OverviewThe information contained in the Budget Overview Book is supported by the Air Force J-Books.Preparation of the J-Book report/study cost the Department of Defense a total ofapproximately $2,822,000. This includes $960,000 in expenses and $1,862,000 in DoD labor. Generated on 27 Mar 13; RefID: D-1B2BFFC 3. FY 2014 Budget Overview ForewordForewordOver the past decade, the Air Force put great emphasis on fielding the war fighting capabilities that arenecessary for ongoing joint and coalition operations. The Air Force was specifically designed to bring airpower, the ability to project military power or influence through the control and exploitation of air, space,and cyberspace, anywhere in the world. As the indispensable partner in the joint fight, the Air Forcesupports the Defense Strategic Guidance and Combatant Commander needs across the globe with ourcore missions: (1) air and space superiority; (2) intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; (3) rapidglobal mobility; (4) global strike; and (5) command and control. We already combine our air, space, andcyber forces to maximize these enduring core missions but the way we execute must continually evolve aswe strive to sustain our Nations asymmetric airpower advantage.The Defense Strategic Guidance directed a rebalance of forces, with a renewed focus on the Asia-Pacificregion, as well as continued emphasis on the Middle East. These national priorities hinge upon a strongand capable Air Force. To remain the most capable Air Force in the world, we must continue tomodernize our over-aged and over-worked weapon systems. In terms of average aircraft age, Air Forceiron is older than its ever been. Additionally, high operations tempo has shortened service lives,increasing the cost to sustain and maintain our weapon systems. Faced with compounding fiscalchallenges, we must make prudent choices to ensure the Air Force continues to preserve our Nationsairpower advantage. To this end, the Air Force is committed to avoiding a hollow force; one that looksgood on paper, but has more units and equipment than it can support, lacks the resources to adequatelyman, train and maintain them, or keep up with advancing technologies. Our budget request maintains andmodernizes our key air and space inventories in line with the Defense Strategic Guidance.For the FY 2013 Budget, the Air Force, Guard and Reserve leadership came together to develop theFY 2013 Total Force Proposal (TFP). The purpose of the TFP was to rebalance aircraft and personnelreductions across the Total Force, while continuing efforts to reduce unaffordable force structure. TheTFP was subsequently presented to Congress and included in the FY 2013 National DefenseAuthorization Act (FY 2013 NDAA). The TFP restored about 38 percent of the aircraft and 55 percent ofthe personnel reductions originally proposed for the Guard and Reserve. With these changes, the activeduty Air Force will reduce to approximately 329,500 personnel in FY 2013, approaching the same size aswhen we were established as a separate service in 1947. At the same time, the FY 2013 NDAA permitsthe Air Force to proceed with selected aircraft retirements and transfers necessary to meet budget targetswhile protecting readiness and modernization.With the onset of Sequestration, we have begun implementing immediate actions to mitigate anapproximate $10B reduction to Air Force Total Obligation Authority. Weve taken steps to minimizeimpacts to readiness and our people; however, the results of these cuts will be felt across all Air ForceCore Missions and challenge the goals of our FY 2014 Budget Submission which does not reflectSequestration reductions. Given todays fiscally constrained environment, the Air Force must pursue thebest combination of choices available to balance force reductions and manage war-fighting risks,resources and the bow-wave of impacts from FY 2013. Taking these actions allows us to keep faith withour 687,634 total force Airmen and continue to excel in our role to fly, fight, and win in air, space andcyberspace.EDWARD L.
