Do you have a unique story about the path that led you to the Air Force? Are you proud of your job and how it impacts the bigger Air Force mission? Do you work in an exceptional unit? If so, the Air Force wants to hear from you!

The 2014 American Airman Video Contest, which began July 1, is open to all Airmen -- uniformed, civilian, Guard and Reserve -- who want to share their story of being an Airman.
