OTH recently had the opportunity to interview Col Doug DeMaio, Vice Commander of the Curtis E. Lemay Center for Doctrine Development. Col DeMaio discussed a variety of topics to include the origins of the Air Force of Multi-Domain Command Control (MDC2) initiative and current efforts to integrate MDC2 in the joint community. We also discussed the 2018 “Doolittle” Wargame which was organized to address MDC2 in a future contested conflict. Lastly, we discussed the 13O career field which will train MDC2 specialists for the Air Force and joint community. Col DeMaio explained what the CSAF expectations for these Airmen will be and how this expertise will translate in the joint community.
