We pay tribute to author, scholar, and strategist Dr. Stephen Chiabotti, Colonel, USAF, retired. Steve was a founding member of the Strategic Studies Quarterly (SSQ) Contributing Editors group and the longest-serving member of the group to date—11 years. Air University and Strategic Studies Quarterly have lost an intellectual giant and dedicated servant whose influence will be sorely missed. Steve’s legacy will continue in the lives of his students, colleagues, and friends for generations.
