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.

"Air Force Special Operations Forces have a long history of conducting ISR missions. From armed reconnaissance on the Ho Chi Minh trail using AC-130s in Vietnam, to today’s hunting, tracking, and killing violent extremists using a multitude of unconventional fixed wing and remotely piloted aircraft, ISR has been an essential, but largely unknown, aspect of being an Air Commando. The men and women of AFSOC have created a world class distributed and networked exploitation system of sophisticated sensors and, most importantly, highly trained people who are skilled in multi-domain operations to find, fix and finish our nation’s enemies. "
-- Bradley A. Heithold, Lt Gen, 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!!"
