Airmanship and Core Values

MISSION:  Transform civilians into motivated, disciplined warrior Airmen with the foundation to serve in the world's greatest Air Force

VISION:  Develop the next generation of Airmen who embody absolute professionalism!

WHAT IS AN AIRMAN?  Air Force Doctrine Document 1-1 defines "airman" as "any US Air Force member (officer or enlisted, active, reserve, or guard, along with Department of the Air Force civilians) who supports and defends the US Constitution and serves our country. Air Force Airmen are those people who formally belong to the US Air Force and employ or support some aspect of the US Air Force's air and space power capabilities. An Airman is any person who understands and appreciates the full range of air and space power capabilities and can employ or support some aspect of air and space power capabilities."

Congrats to our amazing Legal Office! Col. Debra Lovette, 81st Training Wing commander, presented the Keesler legal office with the Air Education and Training Command’s Outstanding Large Legal Office award this week.
Dragons, This week we celebrate the birth of our great nation 242 years ago...a nation born of courage and vision….a vision of a people unafraid to face the unknown. This endeavor only succeeded with unfathomable persistence through failures and sacrifice...sacrifice worthy of the ideals in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Each of us owns a part of this commitment and I have the privilege of standing shoulder to shoulder with all of you as we do our part to serve our nation and ideals. Enjoy some time this week to celebrate this milestone always remembering those who work through holidays and those that are deployed in support of our service and their families. Make good decisions and stay safe. We need you. Proud to stand with you, v/r, DL
