This Almanac was compiled by Amanda Miller, Aaron M.U. Church, and the staff of Air Force Magazine. We especially acknowledge the help of the Secretary of the Air Force Office of Public Affairs, Air Staff agencies, major commands, and reserve components in bringing up to date the comparable data from last year’s Almanac—The Editors.
An Active-Duty Airman set himself on fire in front of the Israeli Embassy this afternoon, the Air Force confirmed to Air & Space Forces Magazine. The man, who was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition, has not yet been publicly identified.
