GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. On behalf of all Marines, I am honored to congratulate the men and women of the United States Air Force on the occasion of your 68th Anniversary.
2. Since its establishment as an independent service on 18 September 1947, the men and women of the Air Force have performed admirably in their service to our Nation, and they exemplify the Air Force motto of “Integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do”. From Korea and Vietnam, to Iraq and Afghanistan, the Air Force has consistently provided our Nation with unmatched air power for nearly seven decades.
3. As you celebrate your rich past, know that you have the support and admiration of the United States Marine Corps. We are proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the world’s finest air force.
4. Happy Anniversary and Semper Fidelis. Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., General, U.S. Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
