Mission & Values

It is important to understand the values that guide and motivate an organization and its members. We are an organization dedicated to achieving excellence in everything that we do. This sentiment is reflected in our Core Values and Mission Statement.

Our Core Values

Integrity First

Integrity is essential. It is the inner voice, the source of self-control, the basis for the trust that is imperative in today's military. Doing the right thing when nobody is looking.

Service Before Self

Military service is not just another job. It is an uncommon profession that calls for people of uncommon dedication. A leader unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the unit cannot convince other members to do so.

Excellence In All We Do

Our mission often involves the risk of human life and sometimes - national survival. The obligation to excel is a moral obligation for members of a professional military force.

Air Force Mission

To fly, fight and win...airpower anytime, anywhere! 

Space Force Mission

Conduct global space operations that enhance the way our joint and coalition forces fight, while also offering decision makers military options to achieve national objectives.
