Air Education and Training Command, with headquarters at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, was established and activated in January 1942, making it the second oldest major command in the Air Force. Its training mission makes it the first command to touch the life of nearly every Air Force member.
Recruit, train and educate Airmen to deliver airpower for America.
We take America's sons and daughters - young men and women who have volunteered to serve their country in a time of war - and develop them into Airmen. Develop denotes more than educating or training them - it implies bringing them to embrace our culture, teaching them, by our example, our core values of integrity, service before self and excellence in all we do.
We are the First Command!
