Without question or debate our United States Air Force is the mightiest the world has ever seen. It is admired and respected by friend and foe alike and we’re committed to keeping it that way.
We are the 170,000 civilians who support and sustain the Air Force with our talent and our dedication—a dedication to the same mission as those in uniform—to defend our nation and protect the values that make America great.
At Air Force Civilian Service we are passionate, focused, and driven by this awesome responsibility, and together with the men and women who serve, we are now and will remain a force to be reckoned with. Forces. Joined.
From every background and all walks of life, we stand shoulder to shoulder, focused on keeping the Air Force ready for action, ready for anything. Our contributions vary widely and are made at every level—from the routine to rocket science and just about everything in between. Each is essential to fulfilling our mission.
While our work is vital to national defense, we also contribute in innovative and even life-changing ways to the well-being of every American. We’re the team that developed and maintains the global GPS satellite system that has revolutionized the way we live and communicate. And that’s just one example.
We manage an impressive array of research facilities around the country where new discoveries are made and remarkable innovations are designed and developed in order to maintain the world’s most powerful airborne force and ensure it succeeds in its mission in air, space, and cyberspace.
