Abstract On 22 May 2011, command of the 9th Air and Space Expeditionary Task Force Afghanistan (9 AETF-A) shifted from Maj Gen Charles Lyon's team to ours, and almost immediately we went to work writing the next chapter of airpower support to counterinsurgency operations. As we began our new roles, the 9 AETF-A staff and subordinate commanders were keenly aware of the recent changes to the command and control (C2) architecture of US Air Forces Central (AFCENT) that occurred in November 2010, thus establishing the subtheater C2.1 Major General Lyon's tenure in Afghanistan included significant organizational change, and his team did an outstanding job of laying the foundation. By the time our team took the reins, everything was in place and running smoothly. Assuming the transformation complete and the major changes behind us, we discovered, however, that the stark situation on the ground made those expectations a far cry from reality.
