"The establishment of Global Strike was one of the most important decisions that General Schwartz and I made when we first came into these leadership positions in 2008. We are very pleased with the results so far, and I know General Klotz is very pleased with the integration of the bomber and missile forces that he has brought together in Global Strike Command. We are on the right path, and we are looking forward to continuing to gain the benefits of this focus on the nuclear mission as we go forward."
