Dave Deptula, now a senior scholar at the Air Force Academy. Gunzinger talks to In Depth with Francis Rose about revamping the Air Force for the next fight.

The Air Force fired nine midlevel nuclear commanders and announced it will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base in response to an exam-cheating scandal. Air Force officials called the discipline unprecedented.
As the combat mission in Afghanistan comes to a close, the awards process is up for review.
A decade's worth of catch-up coming in the Air Force.
