Governor Cuomo Celebrates United States Air Force

Press Releases

New York salutes its Air Force Veterans and those proudly serving in the New York Air National Guard

Albany, NY - September 18, 2013 - Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today joined with all Americans in wishing a happy birthday to the United States Air Force. After proving the importance of air power during World War II, the United States recognized the United States Air Force as a separate and distinct partner in the nation’s military on September 18, 1947.

“Today we celebrate the birth of the U.S. Air Force and we thank our brave men and women of the New York Air National Guard and their families who sacrifice every day to protect our great nation,” Governor Cuomo said. “With the U.S. Air Force recruiting heavily from New York, our guard members have answered the call and served a vital role in keeping the peace and securing our freedoms at home and around the world.”

New York’s Air Force veterans proudly employed cutting-edge technology to deter global warfare, supported allies from the Berlin Airlift to the War on Terror, and took the U.S. from the Sound Barrier to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

Today, over 5,500 uniformed members of the New York Air National Guard and its five wings support the War on Terror and conduct operations at home and throughout the world.
