Offering equal doses of praise and objective – but disquieting – reality, Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall told a major gathering of military and defense logistics experts Monday that the United States’ ability to move people and goods anywhere, at any time, has been unrivaled. But he warned that the nation’s logistics enterprise must adapt to be relevant for the challenges of today’s world.

Kendall’s keynote remarks to the National Defense Transportation Association and the U.S. Transportation Command’s fall meeting at a hotel in suburban Washington offered in unvarnished terms the challenges facing the United States posed by China and what the United States must do to best maintain global stability.
