      Hello, your site was very helpful…..but…… my son is in the air force, I am making a personalized gift with his name, rank and motto on it. Is the 2013 motto AIM HIGH…FLY-FIGHT-WIN ? or is it just AIM HIGH?
      Or maybe? NO ONE COMES CLOSE? I know that I will be corrected no matter what. Thank you

      I think you could do either. I found in my research that the short version is just Aim High, and is actually an older Air Force slogan. The new mottos just tacks on “… Fly Fight Win”.

      See this article in the Air Force Times:

      Sgt. Mike says, “Beware, the third ear is listening.”

      “Peace is our Profession”

      -Air Force Strategic Air Command (SAC) Motto

      90th SMW, 90th SPG, 90th SPS, 4th Air Division, 15th Air Force,. Motto was often followed by the irreverent,

      “Peace is our Profession”.. war is just a hobby.

      many of these are after my time, like

      “Defensor Fortis” – “Defenders of the Force”

      -U.S. Air Force Security Forces”.

      We wore our Command crests on our berets. SAC, TAC, MAC.. I was Honorably Discharged in 82, long time ago.. served 2 years, 4 months, training accident blew out most of my hearing, no longer combat effective.

      no regrets, not one, I got to serve, and this nation, families, friends were all worth it.
