Heritage allows us to pass down traditions, customs and historical information from one generation to the next. Heritage can be something valued by a single person or it can be part of a wider group's sense of identity and character. We place value and interest in our military history and the rich stories it provides. We can not only share it with our own generation but also seek to share it with future generations as the link binding us together throughout history. Our role at the Air Force Memorial is to preserve this heritage and share it with all Airmen, their families and the American public.
We plan to launch a new Airmen Heritage Program, which will capture the military service of all Airmen. This program will allow Airmen from every generation and their families to celebrate this service and sacrifice.
