AFSPC 30th Anniversary Milestone: Cyberspace named an AF war-fighting domain

Air Force Space Command Public Affairs

11/30/2012 - PETERSON AFB, COLO. -- Air Force Space Command is celebrating its 30th Anniversary! Here is a significant milestone from the command's history

On 1 December 2005, the USAF announced cyberspace would be an Air Force warfighting domain, and added cyberspace to the Air Force mission statement.

Secretary of the Air Force Michael W. Wynne and Chief of Staff General T. Michael Moseley, in their joint letter, unveiled a rewritten mission statement for the United States Air Force: "The mission of the United States Air Force is to deliver sovereign options for the defense of the United States of America and its global interests--to fly and fight in air, space, and cyberspace."

This new mission statement reflected the dramatic changes that had occurred in the world in the almost sixty years of the Air Force's existence, and was indicative of the ever-increasing importance of the cyber mission in the Air Force.
