From the statement of Darren W. McDew: "The United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) delivers National objectives on behalf of the United States, and has proudly done so for nearly three decades. As we near our 30th anniversary, we stand ready to deliver an immediate force through our airlift and air refueling assets or a decisive force with our strategic sealift assets when and where needed. Our delivery of these forces assures an unparalleled global expeditionary capability and gives our Nation options when needing to respond to a variety of crises. Ultimately, this unmatched capability extends a helping hand or projects combat power anywhere, at any time and provides a key strategic advantage for our Nation. We must continue to invest in and preserve our edge. Our ability to sustain strategic power projection is challenged on several fronts by potential adversaries growing ever more capable. However, we continue to look forward and innovate as we face challenges, uncertainties, risks, and complex demands placed upon the unique capabilities we provide daily to our Nation."
