The article presents an argument that there must be an agile command relationship in place between U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) with regard to the use of C-17s in support of intratheater airlift augmentation. It describes the importance of the relationship between USTRANSCOM and USSOCOM in enabling the Air Force to meet a growing airlift requirement. An additional airlift and air-drop capability that C-17 would provide is also expected.
