Col. Gail E. Wojtowicz says she has the “best job in the Air Force,” as the chief for the Air Force Future Concepts and Transformation Division. Why? Wojtowicz told attendees at the AEI conference, that she and her staff get to play computer games to see what kind of force the Air Force will need 10, 15, and 26 years down the road. Her challenge is to make warfighters—who want “to blow things up”—start thinking about the “find” part of the equation. “That’s really good that we can engage, but if we can’t find, fix, track, target, and assess, it doesn’t do us any good,” she said. Without developing the “find” element, Wojtowicz says warfighters need a “dang good shield.”
