Celebrating 67 years of global vigilance, global reach, and global power

Lt. Gen. Tod Wolters, 12th Air Force (Air Forces Southern) commander, speaks to the members of 12th AF (AFSOUTH) wishing them all a happy birthday during the 12th AF (AFSOUTH)’s 67th Air Force Birthday at Davis-Monthan AFB, Ariz., Sept. 18, 2014. Founded on Sept. 18, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act that not only established a new defense organization but also established the U.S. Air Force as an independent service. Over the past 67 years the U.S. Air Force has made its mark in history and around the world as it focuses its efforts on maintaining air, space, and cyberspace superiority.
