JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Air Education and Training Command has updated its mission and vision statements, focusing on its roots — recruiting, training, educating and innovation.

The new mission statement, “Recruit, train and educate Airmen to deliver airpower for America,” speaks to the charge of the Air Force’s First Command and the vital stake it holds in the future of the U.S. Air Force.

The new vision statement, “Forging innovative Airmen to power the world’s greatest Air Force,” keeps innovation in the forefront, highlighting the importance of AETC finding effective and efficient ways to ensure Airmen are fully prepared to fly, fight and win.

“AETC holds the cherished responsibility of producing the highest quality Airmen — strong men and women who adhere to our core values, maintain our standards, value our heritage, and perform at exceptional levels,” said Gen. Robin Rand, AETC commander.

“We’re part of the world’s greatest Air Force, but it’s not a birthright. All of us must find innovative and technical solutions to the many challenges our Air Force faces. Therefore, innovative Airmen are our most valuable asset.”

The new mission statement brings AETC Airmen — officers, enlisted and civilian members — back to basics while its new vision focuses them on the lofty task of ensuring mission readiness around the globe through total preparation of warfighters.
