On September 21 and 22, 1995, the Air Force Historical Foundation convened a historical symposium on the United States Air Force’s experience in the development of space systems and their military applications. Held at the Andrews Air Force Base Officers’ Club, Maryland, the symposium was the culmination of nearly a year-long planning effort headed by a committee chaired by Lt. Gen. Bradley Hosmer, USAF (Ret.). Other committee members included Donald R. Baucom, BMDO historian; George W. Bradley 111, Air Force Space Command historian; Col. Louis H. Cummings, USAF (Ret.), the Foundation’s executive director; R. Cargill Hall and Jacob Neufeld, senior historians at the
Air Force History Support Office; and Maj. John Kreis, USAF (Ret.), a Foundation trustee. The symposium was co-sponsored by the Office of the Air Force Historian, in association with the Air Force Space Command and the Air University. Dozens of individuals affiliated with these organizations pitched in graciously and expertly whenever the committee solicited their assistance. We wish to acknowledge especially Lt. Gen. Patrick P. Caruana, vice commander of Air Force Space Command, who introduced one of the panels, and Major Kreis, who introduced another.
