OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Team Osan hosted the 2016 Combined Forces Command Air Boss Conference for senior leaders to discuss airpower strategies in the Pacific region July 22.
Eighty-one senior leaders, including 24 general officers from all branches of the Republic of Korea, United States and alliance forces, discussed emerging threats to the Republic of Korea, Integrated Air and Missile Defense and changes to Korean Theater of Operations Operational Plans.
“The Air Boss Conference is a unique opportunity for senior leaders to fully integrate in support of the KTO,” said Maj. Corey Hancock, 607th Air Operations Center senior offensive duty officer.
The conference brings together commanders from around the Pacific which allows them to plan how to allocate forces during potential crisis or conflict. Another goal is to network and understand allies’ strategies in a combined environment.

"Discussions were focused on the critical capabilities each of the representatives' organizations bring to 'Deter, Defend and Defeat' during wartime operations," said Hancock.
