4/2/2012 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Air Force Materiel Command officials have released the command's limited-edition anniversary book, highlighting AFMC's 20 years of providing expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter.
The release of this commemorative book, entitled 'Air Force Materiel Command: 20 Years of Warfighter Support,' comes during the command's anniversary year and just ahead of the anniversary date of July 1.
"Air Force Materiel Command has matured from a fledgling organization created by the integration of Air Force Logistics Command and Systems Command to become a preeminent provider of warfighting capability," said AFMC Commander Gen. Donald Hoffman.
The anniversary book highlights not only the command's four core mission areas of science and technology, acquisition management, test and evaluation and sustainment but also features profiles of the Airmen executing these missions day to day.
"From our laboratories and test ranges to our acquisition offices and depots, AFMC people have made a difference during the past two decades and will continue to do so in the years ahead," said Hoffman.
The book also features interviews with former AFMC commanders, a historical look at the command's development and little-known facts about AFMC bases. This 144-page commemorative edition is printed in full color on high-quality paper stock.
The AFMC 20th anniversary book was published and printed by Faircount LLC of Tampa, Fla., in conjunction with content provided through the AFMC Headquarters and installation public affairs and history offices. It was printed at no cost to the Air Force since advertising in the book covered production costs.
The book is available in its entirety online at http://www.nxtbook.com/faircount/AFMC/AFMC20/index.php
AFMC personnel interested in obtaining a printed copy of the AFMC anniversary book can contact their local public affairs office.
