Incorporating extensive inputs from all ranks and career fields in the development effort, Airmen have selected "Aim High ... Fly-Fight-Win" as the service's motto.

An enduring statement of Airmen's pride in their service, the motto is a two-part expression -- a call to action, with a response of commitment.

"The call and the response are two sides of the same coin," said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz. "Airmen indicated 'Aim High' and the response 'Fly-Fight-Win' as indicative of their enduring commitment to do just that in defense of our nation."

It almost sounds like something CAP could have come up with. At least our official motto sounds professional.

I wish to compliment NHQ on this extremely well and clearly written regulation.
This publication once and for all should establish the uniform pattern to be followed
throughout Civil Air Patrol.

That does sound a little fight song-y

I could deal with one or the other, but making it a two part statement just seems, I don't know, off.

Fly, fight and win is already in common usage in the Air Force, and it sums up their air dominance and strike role pretty well. Kinda leaves the space and cyber guys hanging though, IMHO.

Personally I have always been fond of 'kill people and break their stuff', but somehow I don't see that finding its way to a recruiting commercial.  >:D
