Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass:
Today is more than just the United States Air Force’s 73rd birthday. Today is an opportunity to reflect on where we came from, how we got here and where we are going.
For more than seven decades we have served, fought, bled and died because our great nation needed us. We have broken barriers, some cultural and some sonic. We have dared to push boundaries, test our own limits and achieve the impossible.
We are, and continue to be, the world’s greatest Air Force.
Happy birthday, wingmen!
