tabAbout USAF History and Museums 
The History and Museums program is charged with the mission of preserving USAF history.  The program is comprised of historians and archivists; writers and editors; national and base museums; research centers; command, base and unit history offices; and other historical organizations.

This page is a simple directional pointer -- it should help users determine which of the three major Air Force Historical web pages has the information they need -- the National Museum of the USAF (NMUSAF), or the Air Force Historical Research Agency, (AFHRA), or the Air Force Historical Support Division, (AFHSD).  See the "Quick Links" boxes on the far right of this page.

Though there is a commonality and similarity of information on each of the Air Force historical web pages, each of the organizations has a unique collection and a unique mission.
