We are AFMC

Who We ARe

More than 89,000 diverse military and civilian Airmen power the Air Force Materiel Command missions. Our workforce is integral to missions from the lab bench to the wind tunnel, from the maintenance hangar to the missile silo, from the acquisition business center to the production line, and from the fire house to defense at our gates and more. AFMC’s research, acquisition, test and sustainment workforce provides the foundation for Air Force readiness.  We perform our wartime mission every day by: experimenting, creating, prototyping, testing and fielding advanced ground, air, nuclear and cyberspace systems and supporting supply chain and maintenance of both new and aging aircraft and systems. We manage and sustain the Air Force’s power projection platforms – our bases – which are foundational to airpower. It is our duty to ensure the delivery of Air Force technology and capabilities faster and smarter than our adversaries.

Our diversity is woven into the work we do every day, and our Airmen include members of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexual identities and orientations, educational backgrounds, career fields and generations, with both uniformed and non-uniformed Airmen powering the fight. This page highlights some of the diverse AFMC Airmen and their roles in helping us to power the world's greatest U.S. Air Force.

These are the FACES of AFMC.
