GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. ON BEHALF OF MARINES AROUND THE GLOBE, IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I CONGRATULATE THE UNITED STATES AIR FORCE ON THE OCCASION OF ITS 67TH ANNIVERSARY.
2. CREATED AS AN INDEPENDENT ARMED SERVICE ON 18 SEPTEMBER 1947, THE U.S. AIR FORCE CONTINUES TO EXCEED THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE UNITED STATES AND ITS CITIZENS. COMBINING INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY WITH SKILL AND COURAGE, THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE AIR FORCE CONSISTENTLY DEMONSTRATE VALOR AND SELFLESSNESS IN THE CONDUCT OF COMBAT AND HUMANITARIAN MISSIONS AROUND THE WORLD.
3. TODAY, THE MARINE CORPS IS PROUD TO STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH YOU IN DEFENSE OF OUR NATION AND OUR WAY OF LIFE. OVER THE LAST DECADE AND A HALF, THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE U.S. AIR FORCE AND MARINE CORPS HAS FLOURISHED AS WE OPERATED SIDE BY SIDE IN IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, AND MANY OTHER LOCATIONS. AS YOU GATHER TO CELEBRATE THIS HISTORIC OCCASION, PAUSE AND REMEMBER THOSE WHO PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE IN DEFENSE OF OUR GREAT NATION AND TAKE PRIDE IN KNOWING THAT YOU ARE THE WORLD'S FINEST AIR FORCE.
4. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND SEMPER FI. JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
