Air Force Print News|by SSgt. Matthew Bates

LOS ANGELES - Maintaining accountability and improving stewardship of the Air Force's nuclear program is the top priority, said the service's 19th chief of staff recently.

Gen. Norton Schwartz said the Air Force has gone through some "rough" air in the realm of nuclear deterrence, but the service is already on the path to recovery.

"The nuclear enterprise is getting a lot of my own and Secretary of the Air Force Michael B. Donley's attention," he said.

As a result, Air Force officials have a rigorous accountability and "back to basics" approach for compliance, precision and reliability within the nuclear arena. The goal is to restore the Air Force's nuclear mission to the standard of excellence for which it was known throughout the entire Cold War.

"We will train, organize and inspect to that standard," General Schwartz said. "The bottom line is we lost focus, and we're bringing that focus back."
