Uncommon Duties in the United States Air Force
***The Department of Defense cleared this book for publication***
Service in the United States Air Force is an honorable profession. Each member of the US Air Force accomplishes incredible tasks in a very broad variety of functional areas in defense of the nation. This is an enormous responsibility, even for very junior airmen. Col. (Ret.) Marty Z. Khan, EdD, an intelligence officer, was one of those airmen who represented the United States in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, The Republic of Georgia, Germany, Greece, Korea, India, Pakistan, Qatar, and Turkey. Working side-by-side with marines, soldiers, sailors, coastguardsmen, US diplomats, and international officers, Marty worked on geopolitical issues, security cooperation, and intelligence sharing programs. For air force officers, working on geopolitical issues to implement the President's National Security Objectives in various parts of the world is an incredible opportunity to see how US policy is made and implemented. Colonel Khan's experiences and his vignettes show what it took to succeed in such a dynamic organization and in dealing with international officers. This book will benefit those who are currently serving in the military and those who have a keen interest in
leadership issues military officers face.
