25th Air Force Vice Commander Touches On Wide Range of Topics

Brig. Gen. George Reynolds, USAF, vice commander of the 25th Air Force, Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, covered a broad range of topics as guest speaker at the chapter's September luncheon. The general began his speech by stating: "It is comforting to know that our Air Force is the most powerful, technologically advanced, agile and lethal fighting force the world has ever known. This capability is a direct reflection of the airmen who make up our service, from the most senior leader to the newest basic training cadet. Each and every airman is a professional warfighter, leader and wingman." He then spoke about trends and comparisons over the last 18 years between the United States and China and how social media and education have affected who leads the charge in technology. When sharing his experience living in New York and working at the Council on Foreign Relations, Gen. Reynolds says he realized "there are many people who do not know the military." He continued that "organizations such as AFCEA have played a vital role for recruitment of future men and women in our military and that community efforts such as AFCEA's STEM and educational scholarships, luncheons and the Alamo ACE all serve to be a force multiplier." Gen. Reynolds went on to discuss the 25th Air Force, explaining that it provides multisource intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) products, applications, capabilities and resources, including cyber and geospatial forces and expertise. With the geographically separated units, the 25th Air Force is the lead for the Air Force Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications Systems (JWICS) and ensures the readiness of Air Force units.
