Air Commando Journal

Written By Air Commandos • For Air Commandos

Our goal is to educate Air Commandos (and all other interested parties) past, present and future on the heritage, history, weapons systems, key units, current operations and overall contributions of Air Commandos towards the preservation of all the values that make this the greatest nation in history.

For over seventy years Air Commandos have led the way in American conflicts to protect and preserve the values that all Americans hold so dear. Literally from World War II till tonight, when deployed AFSOC forces will engage in the latest conflicts, Air Commandos have found unique ways to accomplish tasks that no other forces are equipped for or have the mindset to complete. 

The Air Commando Association has developed a professional journal that covers the gamut of Air Force Special Operators, their equipment, units, and most importantly, the people who through the years have made it happen. Each issue explores the past through the present with articles written by heroes, scholars, commanders and today’s Air Commandos.

Article & Book Review Guidelines

ACJ Article Submission Guidelines

Our goal at the ACJ is to tell the Air Commando and USAF Special Operations story, from our beginning to today. We need your help to do that. We seek quality articles, well written, factually based, and reflecting your experiences living the special operations mission in all of its complexities.

Submissions can be of any length, although 1500- 3000 words would be an average suggestion. All articles will be edited as per the Air University Style and Author Guide . Any articles written by active-duty members must go through an official Security & Policy Review process and must be submitted to your Wing Public Affairs staff prior to submission to the ACA.

Submit your files electronically to: info@, see form below. We use MS-Word, and we also appreciate accompanying photos. Photos should be high resolution (300 dpi) and must indicate the source, have a release for use, and a brief description. If your submission is copyrighted, we will indicate that on the article. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Book Reviews

A book review is often an easy way to try your hand at writing professionally. The Air Commando Journal is seeking reviews of books that may be of interest to our readers. Book reviews should be between 750 and 1,000 words, and provide readers with an overview of the book, a judgement regarding the author’s argument, and a recommendation about the audience the book is most appropriate for. If you have an idea for a review, please contact our editors at They will be happy to advise and assist you.
If you are an author of a book about Special Operations, Air Commandos, or anything related to us and want the Air Commando Journal to review your book, please email to arrange shipment of a complimentary copy for review.
