The Airman’s Creed

Award Wording Details

For you were called to freedom,
brothers and sisters;
only do not use your freedom
as an opportunity for self-indulgence,
but through love
become slaves to one another.
- Galatians 5:13

In honor and appreciation of your service,
as a father and airman.
Your dedication serves as an example to us all.

THE AIRMAN’S CREED

"I am an American Airman.
I am a warrior.
I have answered my nation's call.

I am an American Airman.
My mission is to fly, fight, and win.
I am faithful to a proud heritage,
A tradition of honor,
And a legacy of valor.

I am an American Airman,
Guardian of freedom and justice,
My nation's sword and shield,
Its sentry and avenger.
I defend my country with my life.

I am an American Airman:
Wingman, leader, warrior.
I will never leave an airman behind,
I will never falter,
And I will not fail.”
