Letter to Airmen focuses on diversity

  • Published
In the latest Letter to Airmen, Secretary of the Air Force Michael W. Wynne discusses the importance of diversity in the Air Force and the value it brings to the Total Force.

Secretary Wynne the highlights richness of diversity, citing examples such as the Tuskegee Airmen, the first female Thunderbird pilot and an American Samoan noncommissioned officer who saved the lives of 50 civilians in Iraq.

"America's finest young men and women from all walks of life are drawn to the Air Force, and we celebrate the diversity, passion and perspective they bring," the secretary said. "If we wish to continue dominating the domains of Air, Space and Cyberspace throughout the 21st century, we simply must recruit, develop and retain America's best, regardless of their background."
