the road to foc
The Road to FOC
  • Three capstone events that lead to full operational capability (FOC)
    • Two were planned
      • Initial Operational Capability, 1 Oct 02
      • Determined Promise 03, Aug 03
    • One was unplanned
      • Operation IRAQI FREEDOM, Mar 03
  • Combination of planning, exercises, and real-world events catapulted the Command forward

FOC does not equal end state

today s threat environment
Today’s Threat Environment
  • The threat is real
    • Intent on attacking the Homeland
    • Adaptive, patient and well financed
    • Weapons of mass destruction are the weapon of first choice
    • Must not become complacent
        • It’s not if, it’s when

Deter and prevent, rather than clean-up afterwards…

Will require collaborative efforts of everyone
