We are warriors—we will fight and win wherever our nation needs us. The aerospace realm is our domain, and we are vigilant in our commitment to defend, control, and use it in our nation’s interest. We are leaders; we live our core values.
Our efforts are made possible by the great support of many. Our families, our retirees, the employers of our guardsmen and reservists, our industry partners, and the communities in which we live and work enable us to carry out our mission.
And we are partners in the Joint Team. We project aerospace power anywhere in the world and operate in concert with America’s land and sea forces and with our allies. Wherever we serve, whatever we do—we are America’s Airmen.
America’s best young men and women provide global vigilance, reach, and power for our nation in the 21st century. We will command and lead effectively at all levels—with decisiveness and concern for our people. We’ll provide an environment that encourages all our people to achieve personal and professional excellence, taking pride in being part of the Air Force that is respected worldwide.
We must also manage the effects of tempo on our people. This is particularly important for those elements of the force currently in short supply but in high demand. And we’ll continue leading the way in leveraging the strengths of all our components to optimize Total Force effectiveness in peace as well as war.
We’ll provide them with the education, equipment, and training to perform at their best. And we will demonstrate commitment to our people and to their families, providing a quality of life that lives up to their trust. Our Air Force will be worthy of the great men and women who join us.
