The symposium will take place at the Air Force Conference Center, Andrews AFB, MD, and will feature panels of historians, analysts, and leaders who have directed air operations in this period. Following the Symposium the Foundation will host its annual presentation of awards at a luncheon at Andrews.

The awards luncheon will feature the presentation of two prestigious awards. The fifth annual General Carl "Tooey" Spaatz Award will be presented to an individual for a sustained, significant contribution to the making of Air Force history during a lifetime of service, and is named for the first President of the Foundation and first Chief of Staff of the Air Force.

It is named for the distinguished professor who taught military history at Duke University for over six decades, served as an active and reserve Air Force officer, and influenced several generations of military historians.
