The Air Force Association (AFA) recently announced the AFA 2014 Team of the Year, honoring the Air Force Office of Special Investigations career field.
The Air Force Office of Special Investigations has been the Air Force's major investigative service since August 1948. AFOSI has 2,738 active-duty, Reserve, and civilian personnel, and operates throughout the full spectrum of conflict within any domain, conducting criminal investigations and providing counterintelligence services. Their core mission is to identify, exploit, and neutralize criminal, terrorist, and intelligence threats to the Air Force, Department of Defense, and U.S. Government.
Each year the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, along with the major command-level command chief master sergeants, selects a specific Air Force career field to be recognized as the "Team of the Year." Since 1980, AFA has been privileged to sponsor this award program.
"On behalf of AFA, it's a privilege to congratulate the AFOSI career field for this achievement," said George Muellner, AFA Chairman of the Board. "They have been engaged and irreplaceable to operations for more than half a century. We commend them for their great work ethics and unyielding commitment."
"It is an honor to recognize the men and women of AFOSI for their service and accomplishments," said Craig McKinley, President of AFA. "Their continued sacrifice and vigilance is pivotal to what makes our United States Air Force the best in the world. Furthermore, their demonstration of such high integrity and excellence makes them an inspiration for generations to come."
