LATEST AIR COMMANDO JOURNAL ONLINE!
"The truth is today we have women serving with distinction in all crew positions and combat support roles. The Air Commandos in these pages represent some of our nation’s top talent, contributing diversity of thought, perspectives, and skills to AFSOC. We have fought in every combat contingency since Operation ALLIED FORCE (1999). We are patriots who have a deep desire to serve our nation, defend our Constitution and support our allies at all costs. Some have paid the ultimate sacrifice, including women such as SSgt Anissa Shero. "
-- Brenda Cartier, Brig Gen (Sel), USAF

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!!"
CMSgt William Turner
Former AFSOC Command Chief
