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
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.
