Since its inception in 1947, the U.S. Air Force has been on the leading edge of communications and information management and delivery, providing America's military forces with a major operational advantage.
Aiding personnel at every level in the chain of command, those who lead and support the Air Forces' Communications and Information units are vital to the collection and distribution of a wide range of critical data. Expertly managing internal and external information flow, these highly trained individuals direct the Air Force's communications efforts throughout the world, integrating its vast network of resources for maximum effect. In addition to delivering real-time information to warfighters and commanders in the field, the men and women who serve these units develop and publish reports on Air Force doctrine and protocol.
This coin is dedicated to all those who serve the Communication and Information units of the U.S. Air Force, as they continue to ensure America's military superiority throughout the world. The obverse depicts the official Air Force Communications and Information emblem. The reverse bears the seal of the U.S. Air Force.
Minted in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze, this coin features enamel accents on both sides. Each coin comes with a header card that describes the mission and history of the U.S. Air Force in full detail.
