Celebrating More than 100 Years of Education

From the publication:

AFIT 100th Anniversary — A Century of Education Excellence: From Inspiration to Innovation

Abstract:
“On November 10, 1919, the Director of the United States Army Air Service, authorized Colonel Thurman Bane, Commanding Officer at McCook Field in Dayton, Ohio, to begin instruction at the Air School of Application. Over the past 100 years, that organization has evolved into today’s Air Force Institute of Technology – “AFIT,” now a highly-regarded, doctoral-granting research university and center for career-long professional continuing education.”
