Attention: Essay Winners Announced
In the name and memory of a great Air Force pioneer, the Lance P. Sijan Chapter of the Air Force Association sponsored the General Bernard A. Schriever Memorial Essay Contest. The purpose of the contest was to stimulate thought, discussion, and debate on matters relating to how the Air Force and Air Force Space Command provide space and cyberspace capabilities for the Joint Force and the Nation. The contest was open to all current AF military and civilian personnel, including AF Reserve and Air National Guard members. The Chapter is proud to announce the three winning essays selected from a tough competition of 20 excellent submissions. The three top essays are: “What Happens if They Say ‘No’? Preserving Access to Critical Commercial Space Capabilities During Future Crises,” by Maj Joseph Iungerman, HQ AFSPC/A8; “Space Sustainment: A New Approach for America in Space,” by Maj Kris Barcomb, 24AF/A5X; and “Mission Resilience and the Contested, Degraded and Operationally-limited Space: The Gaps in Tactical Space Operations,” by Capt Bryan Bell and 2Lt Even Rogers. The Air and Space Power Journal will publish the top three essays, and the chapter will award over $2000 in prizes for the top essays. Topics from the other submissions ranged from space and cyber ops to sustainment, testing, training, mission resilience, mission assurance and more. Gen (Retired) Lance Lord led the judging committee, comprised of six senior leaders from HQ AF Space Command, Air University, industry and AFA.
