A Continuing Legacy

More than 63 years ago, Col. Richard P. Klocko initiated actions to create an Air Force unit designed to handle special information. Based on his actions, the Air Force established the Air Force Security Group in June 1948. It was the precursor to today's 25th Air Force. The 25 AF has been known by many names throughout the years as this specialized security organization adapted to fulfill growing mission requirements, meet emerging threats and maintain its motto: Freedom Through Vigilance.
