As a commander I have the privilege to lead a diverse group of Airmen that like America itself, join together to accomplish great achievements as a team.

Default Air Force Logo Command chief encourages excellence in all areas of life
"Excellence in All We Do" extends beyond our primary job. It is not specific to your Air Force Specialty Code. You can't choose when and where to apply excellence.
