The U.S. Air Force celebrated its 74th birthday Saturday.
The Air Force has a 74-year success record in airpower, and all #Airmen—past and present—play an important role in generating military airpower for the nation. We will continue to build on this foundation as we accelerate change to meet the warfighting needs of tomorrow. #USAF74 pic.twitter.com/VI1MYdJVFf— U.S. Air Force (@usairforce) September 18, 2021
With the creation of the U.S. Space Force, the Air Force is no longer the youngest branch. Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall released his own video addressing the force.
SecAF's message to #Airmen on the @USAirForce's birthday: "You’ve built a proud legacy over the decades — the future will call on you to add to it. You’ll need to outpace competitors, face down new challenges & continue owning the skies." #OneTeamOneFight #FlyFightWin #USAF74 pic.twitter.com/Y9cW0NILfA— Office of the Secretary of the Air Force (@SecAFOfficial) September 18, 2021
