Air Force Week is a program endorsed by the Chief of Staff of the Air Force that provides the opportunity to show and tell civic leaders, opinion leaders and the general public what we do, while at the same time, demonstrating our gratitude to the communities which support the Air Force by engaging in events what help give back to the community.

Air Force Week provides the opportunity for the Air Force to reach out to the public where there is little Air Force presence. The week aims to increase awareness, understanding, and support for the accomplishments, performance, and sacrifices of our Airmen; the Air Force's and Airmen's role in the community; the Air Force's gratitude for community support; and those U.S. veterans continue to need community support.
