  • Past, present AF leaders gather at AFSA conference

    United States Air Force senior leaders, past and present, gathered here Aug. 24-29 to speak at the 2013 Air Force Sergeants Association Professional Airman’s Conference and International Convention.
  • CSAF: Every Airman matters, each story is important

    As outlined in the Air Force vision, “every Airman, regardless of specialty, must understand and be able to explain how they contribute to producing unparalleled airpower for our Nation Each Airman has a compelling story that needs to be told. Tell your story. Let your fellow Americans know that their Air Force provides Global Vigilance, Global Reach, and Global Power to defend our great Nation. Airmen should be proud of who they are, what they do, and how well they accomplish the mission.” Airmen can explain their role in producing airpower for America by emailing their story to YourAFstory@pentagon.af.mil.
  • AF leaders cite Airmen as bedrock in new core mission document

    The Air Force released a new document explaining how the service provides airpower for America – titled “Global Vigilance, Global Reach, Global Power for America.”
  • Command and Control ... Total Flexibility

    Airmen employ the Air Force’s other four interdependent and enduring core missions through robust, adaptable, and survivable command and control systems. Using the specialized skills of over 53,000 command and control Airmen, the Air Force provides access to reliable communications and information networks so that the joint team can operate globally at a high tempo and level of intensity. Air Force command and control systems give commanders the ability to conduct highly coordinated joint operations on an unequaled scale using centralized command, distributed control, and decentralized execution.
  • Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance

    Since the beginnings of armed conflict, superior knowledge has been one of the keys to effective combat power. For over 100 years, Airmen have exploited the vertical dimension to gain a decisive information advantage over our foes. The evolution of globally integrated ISR has fundamentally changed how America fights wars. Today, the Air Force has embraced globally integrated ISR as one of the Air Force’s feature calling cards. ISR is much more than a support function.
  • Air and Space Superiority

    America’s freedom to operate effectively across the spectrum of conflict rests not only on the Air Force’s ability to dominate in the air, but also on its ability to exploit space. Every day, over 15,000 Airmen play a role in ensuring space superiority. As the Nation’s space force, the Air Force provides critical capabilities that enhance the military’s ability to navigate accurately, see clearly, communicate securely, and strike precisely.
  • Rapid Global Mobility ... Delivery on demand

    American power can be projected quickly to anywhere on the face of the earth as a result of the Air Force’s capability for rapid mobility. The Air Force’s 122,000 air mobility Airmen provide swift deployment and the ability to sustain operations by delivering essential equipment and personnel for missions ranging from major combat to humanitarian relief operations around the world. Mobility forces also provide in-flight refueling, which is a unique Air Force capability and the linchpin to joint power projection at intercontinental distances.
  • Global Strike ... Any target, any time

    Global strike, a significant portion of America’s deterrence capability, means that the Nation can project military power more rapidly, more flexibly, and with a lighter footprint than other military options. With the expertise of over 26,000 Airmen, the Air Force’s nuclear and conventional precision strike forces can credibly threaten and effectively conduct global strike by holding any target on the planet at risk and, if necessary, disabling or destroying it promptly—even from bases in the continental United States.
  • The Power of Airmen

    The effectiveness of Air Force airpower comes directly from thepower of Airmen. While it is natural to define the Air Force interms of its aircraft, missiles, or satellites, in reality, the Service’sunmatched capabilities exist only and precisely because of theimagination, innovation, and dedication of its people. Sincethe airplane was employed
  • The Enduring Importance of Airpower

    In January 2013, the United States Air Force released a vision statement that focuses on “Airmen, Mission, and Innovation.”In addition to recognizing Airmen as the power behind the Air Force and acknowledging the importance of innovation toour story, the vision encourages Airmen to understand and explain their role in producing airpower for America
  • America's Asymmetric Advantage

    From airpower’s earliest days, Airmen working together have exploitedtechnology to provide essential knowledge and information on whenand where to act, to move people and materials when and whereneeded, to control the ultimate high ground, and to strike where andwhen desired. In building the Air Force’s culture of “over, not through,”we now have an
  • Airmen + Core Missions = Global Vigilance, Global Reach, Global Power

    No single core mission offers only one of the three effects of airpower—Global Vigilance, Global Reach, or Global Power—because all five core missions are necessary to provide the integrated global airpower effects that only the Air Force cansupply. And each Airman, regardless of their mission-specific specialty, plays a critical role in delivering
  • Air Force Core Missions

    Airmen bring to the Nation’s military portfolio five interdependent and integrated core missions that have endured sincePresident Truman originally assigned airpower roles and missions to the Air Force in 1947. Although the way we do themwill constantly evolve, the Air Force will continue to perform these missions so that our military can respond
  • Air Force Vision

    America is—and always will be—an aerospace nation. To fully realize the Nation’s aerospace potential, President Truman established an independent Air Force in 1947 to better protect America, its citizens, and its allies. From this beginning, we have grown airpower into the ability to project global military power through air, space, and cyberspace.
  • Message from CSAF

    Since the Air Force was born in 1947, the core missions of the United States Air Force haven’t fundamentally changed.
