'Year In Photos' highlights 2008

  • Published
Throughout the past year, Airmen, deployed and at home, successfully carried out the Air Force mission to Fly, Fight and Win in air, space and cyberspace.  

Whether it was maintaining and launching an unmanned aircraft, tending to a wounded warrior, helping to reinforce a levee during a major flood, building a school house in a remote village or providing accurate weather forecasts anywhere in the world, total force Airmen -- active duty, Guard, Reserve and civilian -- served selflessly and honorably.

During 2008, military photographers have taken thousands of photographs that document the service of the nation's Airmen.  The annual "Year in Photos" captures the spirit and essence of the men and women serving in the United States Air Force.

Fifty four Air Force photos have been selected to highlight Airmen around the globe. Click here to view the 2008 Year in Photos Slideshow.  Put your mouse over the photo to view the cutline.
