In 2007, GeneralT. Michael Moseley, Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, introduced the Airman's Creed. In a letter introducing the creed, Moseley wrote that one of his "top priorities" was to "reinvigorate the warrior ethos in every Airman of our Total Force." Thus, the intent of the creed was to enhance the building of a warrior ethos among its Airmen and to provide Airmen a tangible statement of beliefs.
The Airman's Creed is intended to remind Airmen that they are more than a "conglomeration of diverse specialties, skill sets, or job," but members of the profession of arms.
