Core Values

Integrity First

Service Before Self

Excellence in All We Do

"Our Core Values, Integrity first, Service before self and Excellence in all we do, set the common standard for conduct across the Air Force. These values inspire the trust which provides the unbreakable bond that unifies the force. We must practice them ourselves and expect no less from those with whom we serve."

General Michael E. Ryan
Chief of Staff
United States Air Force 

In 1995,  The Honorable Sheila E. Widnall, Secretary of the Air Force and General Ronald R. Fogleman, Air Force Chief of Staff, approved these core values for the United States Air Force.  The Air Education and Training Command and the United States Air Force Academy were tasked with promulgating these core values throughout the Air Force at every level.  This initial education has been completed.  Air Force commanders and schools for professional military education continue to hold these values up for the inspiration and guidance of new generations of military professionals.
