We Stand Guard Together!

Defenders, the civil unrest in the media over the loss of George Floyd has left Americans concerned and outraged.  We can all see the wrong in what took place.   The pain America feels for him and his family is real.

As a society we have come so far…which makes it just that much more painful to watch what is unfolding in the news and social media.  The reality of this situation makes us think about our role in respecting each other and doing what is right.

It is very unfortunate that it took a catastrophic event like this to bring America together…and it will take all of us in our own responsible way to make a course correction.

As a respected and professional Law Enforcement Career Field, it is inherent that we continue to treat each other and those we Protect, Defend and Serve with the Dignity and Respect that everyone deserves, regardless of the situation.  

Our Defender standard is Dignity and Respect for those we Protect & Serve, because we all (38K Total Force Defenders) serve and fight for what is right and just for a country that we love. 

We are always stronger together….and we must continue to BREATHE for those who cannot…and speak with one voice.  

Today Defenders…we are “Standing Guard”…I stand with 38K Professional Defenders and those who came before us.  I am extremely honored to serve with an elite group of Defenders who wear the badge proudly. 

Your Security Forces leadership condemns racism in any form and stand in SOLIDARITY with those affected

Stay Vigilant, Stay Safe and continue to be the very best Defenders we can for our Air Force and our Country!
