The Death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden

On May 1, 2011, our Commander-in-Chief made an announcement to the country, an announcement that we have all waited nearly 10 years to hear. Osama bin Laden, the chief architect of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that forever changed our nation, was defeated and killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan. In an address to the nation, President Obama thanked the "tireless work of our military."

On behalf of the Air Force Association, we wholeheartedly thank all the men and women who have sacrificed so much to make this moment possible. This moment of achievement greatly reflects on the dedication and determination of our armed forces, who refused to tire, falter and fail. We salute them for their courage, we thank them for their perseverance and we remember them for their sacrifices.
