Into the Wild Blue Yonder

The Air Force leadership intends to announce USAF’s new motto at the conclusion of the next Corona senior leadership summit in late September. The process of identifying a new motto began in February with airmen given the opportunity to voice their suggestions. Service officials are now close to having a list of 10 candidate mottos that airmen will get the chance to rack and stack in a survey. The top three selections will then be carried into the Corona in Colorado Springs, Colo. The leadership will then decide upon the winner. “The intent is to create a phrase that captures the spirit of the Air Force, is inspirational, and serves as an enduring rallying cry for airmen, from airmen,” said Gen. Howie Chandler, USAF Vice Chief of Staff . (SAF/PA report by TSgt. Amaani Lyle)
