General Speaks on MAJCOM Changes

The chapter hosted Gen. Janet C. Wolfenbarger, USAF, vice commander, Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), Ohio, in October. The command conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and provides acquisition management and logistics support necessary to keep Air Force weapon systems ready for war. Gen. Wolfenbarger, originally from WPAFB area, was commissioned in 1980 as a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and began her career in acquisition as an engineer at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. She has held a variety of assignments at headquarters Electronic Security Command and Air Force Systems Command. The general has held several positions in the F-22 System Program Office at WPAFB, served as the F-22 lead program element monitor at the Pentagon and the B-2 System Program Director for the Aeronautical Systems Center, WPAFB. She also has commanded the ASC's C-17 Systems Group, Mobility Systems Wing, and was director of the Air Force Acquisition Center of Excellence. Prior to her current assignment, Gen. Wolfenbarger was the director of the headquarters AFMC Intelligence and Requirements Directorate, where she enabled AFMC to deliver war-winning capabilities through life-cycle capabilities planning, technology development and transition, intelligence integration and acquisition support. She cited this as the Air Force's largest change in 20 years. The Air Force has moved from 12 commands to five. The new command is called the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC).
