The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win…in air, space and cyberspace.
To achieve that mission, the Air Force has a vision of Global Vigilance, Reach and Power.

Core competencies and distinctive capabilities are based on a shared commitment to three core values — integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.
