USAFE Optempo Demands Review of Force Reductions in Europe

Stars and Stripes reports that “the high operations tempo for airmen in Europe shows no sign of abating given the heightened uncertainty in the region and the world, says the Air Force’s top commander in Europe.”  

“In the future, U.S. Air Forces in Europe may need to rely on supplemental forces from elsewhere to maintain current operations in the long term in eastern Europe, said Gen. Frank Gorenc, commander of U.S. Air Forces in Europe and U.S. Air Forces Africa.”  

“’We can work it from here in the short term,” he said in an interview Monday with Stars and Stripes. ‘It can’t go on forever.’”
