The United States Air Force Academy ~ Established April 1, 1954

On April 1, 1954, Dwight D. Eisenhower signed into law the establishment of the United States Air Force Academy.  Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the Air Force Academy’s mission is to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead the United States Air Force in service to our nation.  The program at the Academy is guided by the Air Force’s core values of “Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.

After 58 years, the United States Air Force Academy is still flying high on the wings of honor.

    If you ever have the opportunity, go by the USAFA. We took our civic leaders this past September, so they could see the kind of leaders we’re producing. They were very impressed. The curriculum is tough, including engineering classes and advance math for every cadet regardless of degree. Not only mental rigor, but physical of course…and indepth formation on character development. Our nation’s future demands we have officers with the right stuff…they’re build here in preparation for future challenges.
