BUCKLEY SPACE FORCE BASE, COLO. --

Gen. Arnold W. Bunch Jr., Air Force materiel Command commander, and Chief Master Sgt. David A. Flosi, AFMC command chief, visited Buckley Space Force base on October 28, 2021, to discuss the major command servicing support to Airmen assigned to united States Space Force installations.

This unique and new support structure ensures 8,000 Airmen working under the USSF will receive the same support as those assigned to Air Force installations, and that no Airmen will be left behind.  

“The focus is going to make sure the Space Force mission gets done, while taking care of the Airmen,” said Bunch. “Our goal is to make sure our Airmen are can fully developed into their career.”

AFMC will assume the roles and responsibilities traditionally performed by a major command for Airmen. Some of these responsibilities include providing policy guidance, interpretation and, where applicable, waiver authority; professional development opportunities and guidance; developmental team representation; and functional-specific roles.

“The General and I are ensuring that our Airmen are receiving the same level of support as all other Airmen,” said Flosi.

The Airmen aligned under the AFMC will also be provided the same force development and functional and administrative support as the Airmen already stationed at United States Air Force installations.

“The reality of this is, we are here to work for you and to serve you,” said Bunch. “The AFMC leadership team is committed to making our Airmen successful.”,
