Air Force Looks to Increase ‘Lethality Per Gallon’ With Energy and Climate Goals | Air & Space Forces Magazine

"If we can figure out ways in which we can be more energy efficient, we’re basically increasing lethality per gallon,” said acting Assistant Secretary for Energy, Installations, and Environment Edwin Oshiba.

"What that translates to is more time on target if you’re talking about aircraft refueling or a fighter aircraft. It means more cargo per mile if you’re talking about moving cargo across the Indo-Pacific theater."

The Department of the Air Force is hoping to release an implementation plan for its Climate Action Plan by mid December.

Joining Forces - The White House

“We have an all-volunteer force—and it continues only because generations of Americans see the honor, dignity, and patriotism of military service. How can we hope to keep our military strong if we don’t give our families, survivors, and caregivers what they need to thrive? That’s what Joining Forces is about.” -Dr. Jill Biden

Joining Forces is a White House initiative to support military families, which includes: families of service members and veterans, caregivers and survivors.
