Unofficially Thanksgiving is the kickoff to the season of gratitude and thankfulness expressed during the holidays. The Air Force social media team would like to say that we are grateful for the opportunity to highlight and share the stories of our most valuable assets in the Air Force’s inventory. That’s our Airmen! We would like to take a moment to express our thankfulness to the Airmen for all your hard work supporting the mission of the Air Force, to fly, fight, and win; in air, space, and cyberspace. You continue to demonstrate with confidence our Air Force core values: Integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all you do.
The Air Force mission is to fly, fight, and win in air, space, and cyberspace anytime and anywhere. Every time I see images or watch video footage of my fellow Airmen I’m motivated even more to live out the Air Force core values. It’s almost like hearing your favorite song before you go to work out. After you hear the song, you are mentally prepared to accomplish your workout goals.
Here are a few videos that highlight parts of the Air Force mission from around the world that truly give insight into the amazing things Airmen are doing across the Air Force. We’ll be sure to share more videos in the future of other Air Force missions. I chose to highlight these videos because of the job diversity shown in each video. We have more than planes in the Air Force; people assume we are all pilots or aircraft maintainers. All of the jobs in the Air Force reinforce our mission to fly, fight and win. We are truly one team! We will never falter, and we will not fail

Around the world and at home, America’s Airmen bring critical airpower capabilities to bear against the most pressing national security challenges. Incredible advances are made every day to strengthen those capabilities through the combined efforts of Airmen and aerospace nation partners.
During the 2015 Air Force Association Air And Space Conference, the America’s Airmen exhibit highlighted core missions of Airmen across the globe in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, space and special operations.
Today’s booth put the spotlight on Airmen working in the cyber and space operations career fields. We talked with Capt. Brian Belongia, 90th Information Operations Squadron assistant director of operations at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, to learn a bit about cyber operations career field.
