LATEST AIR COMMANDO JOURNAL ONLINE!

ACJ Vol 7 Issue 1 Mayaguez

"This edition of the Air Commando Journal keeps alive the memory of those Airmen, Marines, and Sailors who, without question, said, “Send me” when communist Khmer Rouge fighters seized the ship ... Many of the captains, lieutenants, and young NCOs from the 21st SOS, 40th ARRS, and 16th SOS would go on to form the nucleus of what became Air Force Special Operations Command. "

Foundation: Supporting Air Commandos & Their Families

Air Commando Foundation

“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!!"

CMSgt William Turner
Former AFSOC Command Chief
