As an Air Force major command, AMC trains, organizes, and provides operationally ready forces to the unified commanders. The NAFs play a vital role in AMC's overall ability to accomplish this important service function. Both 15th and 21st Air Force aid AMC in unit evaluation, assessment, communications, customer service, and force management. The NAFs help focus their units on readiness and performance. As liaisons, the NAFs voice the concerns of their units reporting information vital to continuous improvement and support of customers. In an advocacy role, the NAFs reinforce the command's goals, acting as a conduit to transmit command policy, guidelines, and instructions. By training and evaluating their units to established standards, both 15th and 21st Air Force ensure that AMC organic forces -- active and ARC -- are ready to perform their assigned missions."
