Happy 64th Birthday, United States Air Force!!!
Relentlessly committed to the defense of liberty, the United States Air Force celebrates its 64th birthday today, Sept. 18. The Air Force began life as the Army Air Corps but became a separate Armed Services Branch when the Department of the Air Force was created by the National Security Act of 1947. The U.S. Air Force continues its critical mission "to fly, fight and win ... in air, space and cyberspace."
Heartfelt thanks to both my Sons and my Daughter-in-Law who have chosen to serve in the United States Air Force. I am so very proud of you and love you so very much.
Warmest thanks to Chief, Shay, Curtis, Jazz, Leslie, Katrina, and Albert who also serve today as proud Airmen. My prayers remain constant for each of you.
Deepest thanks to Tim and Mike, who proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam Era. God loves you, America loves you and so do I.
Thank you to all who have chosen to serve in the United States Air Force in the past and today. We are a Great Nation because of our Amazing Warriors.
