Welcome to ACAOnline!
ACA is dedicated to preserving our great heritage of Air Commandos’ achievements past, present, and future and to honoring the tremendous contributions made to protect the values held dear by all Americans.
We are a worldwide membership based organization founded in 1969, and have over 3,700 members who are active duty or retired Air Commandos from all ranks and specialties. We also have several associate members from other branches of the military who wish to remain affilated with Special Operations. ACA has chapters at Cannon AFB, NM; Hurlburt Field, FL; Kadena AB, Japan; Kirtland AFB; RAF Mildenhall, England; Rocky Mountain region; Tampa Bay area; and Washington D.C.
ACA publishes a magazine called the Air Commando Journal and its sole mission is to tell the Air Commando and USAF Special Operations story, from our beginning to today. Members receive current ACA news via our Membership E-Newsletter along with timely emails informing them of important updates. AirCommando.org is our official website and has information including our history, upcoming events and our latest publications.

"Without much hesitation, ACA decided to celebrate Chapman’s induction separately and induct the other five selectees at another time. After all, it’s hard to compete with a Medal of Honor recipient. So, in conjunction with AFSOC’s local celebration of MSgt (posthumously promoted) John Chapman, the ACA hosted a special HoF Induction Banquet on Saturday, 27 Oct 2018, at the Emerald Coast Convention Center in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. This was the largest event ACA has sponsored, with more than 800 people in attendance, including Chapman’s widow, both of his daughters, his mother, brother, both sisters, and other family members. Air Force Chief of Staff, General David Goldfein, was the keynote speaker, with Lt Gen “Brad” Webb, AFSOC commander, providing introductory remarks. Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force Kaleth Wright also attended. Thanks so much to the many corporate sponsors who helped make this such an extraordinary event. The volunteers who assisted were awesome -- including active duty members contributing on their off-duty time. We couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you!"
-- Wayne G. Norrad, CMSgt, USAF (Ret)

Foundation: Supporting Air Commandos & Their Families
“Thanks to the Air Commando Association [Foundation] for their passionate and compassionate care of our force. Once again, when a need for benevolence was identified they quickly answered the call. For all the gracious organizations out there that care for our wounded, ill, and in need teammates, the ACA [Foundation] is by far the most responsive and has the greatest latitude to give. Hats off to Maj Gen-retired Secord and Col-retired Barnett. What you’ve done with ACA is remarkable...and very much appreciated by AFSOC leadership and our great force of Air Commandos! HOOYAH, ACA!!"

Former AFSOC Command Chief
