We Are Airmen for Life
The Air Force Association exists as an organization so we can all be Airmen for Life. It is the very foundation on which General Jimmy Doolittle built AFA. History records that after World War II, General Doolittle was concerned that those great Airmen who fought in the war would disperse and lose touch. His concept was to "keep the gang together," which is another way of saying he provided a forum for Airmen to serve a cause they believed in and loved for life.
AFA held a logo contest so that our Airmen for Life could participate in creating a lasting design that embodies this very principle. AFA was very proud to announce that Christian Anderson's beautiful design was selected as the winner for our official Airman for Life logo. Anderson is an Air Force Veteran having served with the 62nd Military Airlift Wing as an illustrator and graphic designer. Anderson's design displays the infinity symbol and an aircraft to represent the principle of being an Airman for Life. Thank you Christian and all those who submitted designs for our contest! Be on the lookout for new merchandise including our Airman for Life logo.
