GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  ON BEHALF OF ALL WHO WEAR THE EAGLE, GLOBE AND NCHOR, I CONGRATULATE THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ON THEIR 66TH ANNIVERSARY.
2.  SINCE BEING FORMED AS AN INDEPENDENT BRANCH OF THE U.S. MILITARY ON 18 SEPTEMBER 1947, THE AIR FORCE HAS MAINTAINED AN HONORABLE RECORD OF INITIATIVE, INNOVATION AND COURAGE.  NO MATTER THE MISSION, WHETHER HUMANITARIAN RELIEF, CLOSE AIR SUPPORT OR AIR-TO-AIR COMBAT, U.S. AIRMEN HAVE PROVEN THEIR METTLE IN BATTLE AND THEIR COMPASSION IN TIMES OF CRISIS.
3.  AS YOU CELEBRATE ANOTHER IMPORTANT ANNIVERSARY AND HONOR THE SACRIFICES AND SERVICE OF YOUR VETERANS, KNOW THAT MARINES AROUND THE GLOBE STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH THE WORLD'S FINEST AIR FORCE.
4.  CONGRATULATIONS AND HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!  JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
