The Department of Defense is transforming to meet a changing strategic environment. A prime example of this transformation is a strategic shift from the US military performing specific wartime tasks to a focus on building partner capacity (BPC). This shift is visible in the Air Force Irregular Warfare Strategy, which emphasizes the need to build the capabilities of US partner nations. While it is clear that BPC is a critical emerging mission that the Air Force should embrace, the real question is how? Security cooperation is an inherently complex and difficult undertaking. Regardless of the countries involved, these programs require years of effort and vast amounts of resources to deliver measurable returns, and continuity is critical. Leveraging the unique capabilities of the Air National Guard (ANG) to build the capacity of nation-states in critical regions of the world is a smart option for several reasons. Most notably, the ANG can establish enduring relationships with partner nations and ANG airmen have civilian competencies that are compatible with the BPC mission set.
