WASHINGTON — For the past eight years, the chiefs of staff of the Air Force, along with the chief master sergeants of the Air Force, have created a comprehensive reading list of motivating and inspiring material that invigorates and gives a perspective to Airmen in their Air Force careers, highlighting a common theme.

The Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. Mark A. Welsh III has issued a call to all Airmen, to help create the 2015 CSAF Professional Reading Program, asking for submissions that center on the profession of arms and more specifically the Air Force core values: Integrity first, service before self and excellence in all we do.

“I ask you to give me your thoughts on those books and movies that have inspired you throughout your service as an Airman, that have made you proud to be among the half-a-percent of Americans who’ve dedicated themselves to the profession of arms, or gave you a new perspective on Integrity, service, or excellence,” Welsh said.

The program was started in 1996 by Gen. Ronald Fogleman, who created the CSAF reading program to develop a common frame of reference among Air Force members — officers, enlisted, and civilians that effectively advocates for air and space power. Chiefs of staff since then have enhanced and continued the Professional Reading Program.

The list has inspired and highlighted many areas throughout the years of its existence to include books, conferences, films, art and photographers that give sight into the military way of life and Air Force core values.

“A list will be built that will make our Air Force stronger,” Welsh said. “I’m excited to hear from you and excited to read some terrific books recommended by the greatest Airmen in the world! Thanks for all you do.”
