It’s no secret that the men and women of the Air Force are passionate about their service — and why shouldn’t they be? The Air Force is amaaa-zing. With facinating missions, sleek aircraft and technology and super talented Airmen, it’s pretty hard to find something you truly hate about the Air Force. Whether or not you’ve enjoyed your time as an Airman, you’ll appreciate the photos we’ve (the Air Force Social Media Team) compiled for you here. They’ll make you fall in love with the Air Force all over again.
Here are five of the many reasons why we love the Air Force:
1. The sacrifice our brave men and women make every day
PHOTO: Lt. Col. Philip Wielhouwer, 74th Fighter Squadron commander, is pictured here meeting his three-week old son, Ryan, for the first time at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., Aug. 9, 2009. We all know fellow Airmen who have sacrificed precious time with their families for the Air Force mission.
2. The camraderie we share with our fellow Airmen and sister services
PHOTO: Who else can you punch and still be friends with? All joking aside, our Airmen share a special bond with our fellow military members and each other. If you’ve ever served in the military – you know what we’re talking about.
3. We have some pretty cool aircraft and technology
PHOTO: This is just epic.
4. Integrity, service and excellence
PHOTO: Airmen honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and embrace the Air Force herritage, while looking forward to what the future brings.
5. We sleep better at night knowing our Airmen keep watch
PHOTO: Fly, fight and win.
BONUS: We have really cute puppies
PHOTO: Ok, so that’s not just an Air Force thing..but come on..this guy is pretty cute!
