Col. Mike Orr, the CO of VMX-22, recently attended The Williams Foundation conference held by the RAAF on the evolution of 21st century air combat capabilities. He focused on the work the UMSC was doing to shape an integrative force under the influence of disruptive change.
He followed the only Aussie F-22 pilot and then a presentation by his fellow Marine, Lt. Col. Berke, the only operational F-22 and F-35 pilot in the world.
This unique experience of three operators discussing the present and the future had a powerful impact It left the cubical commandos behind and clearly was well received by the Royal Australian Air Force officers in attendance, and there were many of them, as well The Chief of Staff of the RAAF began the conference with a thoughtful look at the way ahead.
