SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. —  Since taking command of the 375th Air Mobility Wing in July, Col. John Poole has spent time working with his leadership team, evaluating the health of the wing to determine how to make the wing stronger.

He has since sent a report to higher headquarters affirming that the wing is “combat ready” and able to accomplish its mission to “Execute Rapid Global Mobility” for Air Mobility Command and the Air Force.

Along with this assessment, are a few improvement areas that he has charged his team with.  The Air Force calls these mission priorities “Lines of Efforts,” or LOEs, which allow an organization to outline and drill down into what areas need continued steady-state work and other areas that may have room for improvement.

Poole outlined these LOEs, which are “Operate the Flagship,” “Project Forces Forward,” and “Seize Competitive Advantage” during a commander’s call Dec. 6, 2023, on Scott Air Force Base.

U.S. Air Force Col. John Poole, 375th Air Mobility Wing commander, hosts an all-call on Scott Air Force Base, Illinois, Dec. 6, 2023. During the all-call, Poole announced his new Lines of Effort for the 375th AMW, which include operating the flagship, projecting forward forces and seizing the competitive advantage.

“The Air Force has global missions, operating 24/7,” said Poole. “We are not only an air mobility hub, our base is the platform for the command and control of the global mobility enterprise, and regardless of the circumstances, we have to continue operations, we have to keep the power running and we have to keep the comms connected—we have to keep the flagship in the fight.”

Operate the Flagship means to provide mission assurance of critical installation functions for the global mobility enterprise and cyber missions, regardless of conditions.  Under this umbrella of focus will be:

  • advance the installation as a global power projection platform;
  • continue efforts to develop ready Airmen and families;
  • expand the resilience of the installation’s infrastructure; and
  • enhance base security with optimized automation.

As the wing focuses on its readiness mission under the Project Forces Forward LOE, the team will specifically work on:

  • posturing to execute all taskings from higher headquarters;
  • institutionalizing mission command and distributed operations;
  • priming the flow of forces from the east-west hubs; and
  • maximizing the use of drones and technology in everyday operations.

When it comes to Seize Competitive Advantage, the wing cultivates and exploits opportunities to drive the future. This involves the following focus areas:
