The article discusses the role of contingency contracting to the U.S. Air Force missions in Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq. It says that contract support frees up airmen to perform core military activities and helps commanders meet emerging demands and the often changing requirements associated with the realities of war. Moreover, contingency contracting experiences would help improve the Air Force's ability to plan for combat operations at contingency operating locations.
