Valor Articles Index

  In February 1983, Air Force Magazine began a series of one-page stories about Air Force heroes. We called the new series "Valor." It ran monthly and was enormously popular from the start. By the time the fourth "Valor" story was published in May 1983, we had recruited Col. John L. Frisbee, USAF (Ret.), a former editor of Air Force Magazine, as the regular author. He wrote all of the episodes that appeared after that. The final "Valor" article was published in December 1999.

The full collection of "Valor" articles presented here is, without a doubt, the most extensive body of material in existence anywhere about heroism in the US Air Force and its predecessor organizations.
