A Quick Introduction to Doctrine - The Air Force provides the United States with airpower. To achieve this, our Air Force doctrine provides Airmen with the historically proven best practices learned through experience. These foundational basics allow us to respond more quickly to operations in today's changing world environment, freeing commanders and planners to think about larger issues such as strategy, operational art, and objectives.
