Hyten: U.S. Strategic Command is Reorganizing for 21st Century WarfightingOctober 3, 2017
US Department of Defense:
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2, 2017 — The commander of U.S. Strategic Command is reorganizing to improve its warfighting structure.
Air Force Gen. John E. Hyten told the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber Conference recently that he recognized there was an organizational mismatch on Nov. 3, the day he took command.
He signed out the implementation order in June, and the new air component went live yesterday.
“Even though we’re listed as a functional combatant command in the Unified Command Plan,” Hyten told the audience, “Stratcom is the ultimate warfighting command. It is our nation’s ultimate power. And it is a warfighting command from beginning to end.”
