An inspirational video posted in April 2019 from the United States Air Force outlines what it means to be a part of one of America’s finest fighting forces. The narration also expresses gratitude towards those who chose to serve and protect this great country.

“Today’s Air Force is the best in the world and the reason is obvious — our people,” the video description states.  “Pure and simple. It’s no secret, a life of service can be hard and demanding – yet, our Airmen demonstrate an unrivaled dedication and inspiring willingness to serve. That’s why it’s important to recognize – publicly and often – the incredible work that is done every day, everywhere across the Air Force.”

“Capturing that work, that attitude and the people behind it, is the focus of a new series of short films called ‘Because of You,'” the video explains. “The first is about aviators, another looks at the lives and work of our maintainers, and there will be others to follow.”

“Taken together, the films highlight the skill and professionalism our Airmen bring to the job each day. These are the Air Force’s defining characteristics, our core values, our ethos – and what drives the Air Force to impressive heights.”

“For being willing to strap on our nation’s business, for the sacrifices you and your families have made, and for the sacrifices you will make, thank you,” the video’s narrator says at the end of the montage.

“We are the best damn Air Force on the planet because of you. And with you, we are only going to get better.”
