    The Air Force mission is air, space and cyberspace.

    That means the Air Force is the branch primarily responsible for all those things, be it air superiority, space command, or cyber security for the military.

    Basically, all operations center around the use of air, space and cyber power to achieve the goal of defeating America’s enemies. That means airplanes from fighter jets, attack jets, bombers, cargo planes, spy and GPS satellites, land based ICBMs, computers, etc.

    Each person is trained in a specialty that in some way supports or is directly involved with that operation. You could be a fighter pilot (air superiority), satellite technician (space command), missile systems (ICBMs), JTAC (ground based forces), aircraft fueler or crewchief/jet engine mechanic (aircraft maintenance), information technology specialist, and so on and so forth.

    Think of the USAF as an entire airport. Everything that you would need to keep an entire airport going, you have someone for that. You would need security, civil engineering, air traffic controllers, truck drivers, cooks, admin, doctors/nurses/medical technicians/medics, etc.

    What you do will depend on your AFSC (military job), so your training will specialize in that.
