WASHINGTON (AFNS) --
Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James, Air Force
Chief of Staff Gen. Dave Goldfein, and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air

Force’s 69th birthday:
To the Airmen of the United States Air Force:
On the 69th birthday of our United States Air Force, we salute you - the
dedicated Airmen providing unrivaled Airpower for America - as we
celebrate the establishment of the United States Air Force as a separate
service. We remember our proud heritage and honor those who advocated
for an independent Air Force, passing on to us the responsibility for
continued innovation and leadership in the air, space, and cyber
Today, our Air Force delivers Global Vigilance, Global
Reach, and Global Power with unmatched effectiveness. With tens of
thousands of Airmen supporting combatant commanders from deployed
locations and many more directly contributing from their home stations,
the United States Air Force is absolutely essential to prevailing in
every joint fight.
America depends on our remarkable Total Force
of Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, and Civilian Airmen who have never
failed to answer our Nation’s call. We thank you and your family for
your service, sacrifice, and commitment to the defense of our Nation.
Happy 69th birthday United States Air Force!
