This week the Alaska World Affairs Counsel presents General Carrol H. Chandler, presenting "An Airman's Perspective: Executing Air, Space and Cyber Power To Fly, Fight and Win in the Pacific". This should provide interesting insights into the military persepective on conflicts in the Pacific. General Chandler is presently the current Commander, Pacific Air Forces.
The general graduated in 1974 from the United States Air Force Academy and has commanded a numbered air force, two fighter wings, a support group and a fighter squadron. Previous to his current assignment as Commander of PACAF, Gen. Chandler completed two tours at the Pentagon, as well as two tours at Headquarters Pacific Air Forces. Some of the generals experience in the Pacific was gained in his prior command. Prior to assuming his current position the general served as Commander of Alaska Command (ALCOM), Alaskan North American Aerospace Defense Command Region, 11th Air Force and Joint Task Force - Alaska which has its headquarters at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Alaska.
