Large spring graduation class at WPAFB to earn CCAF degrees

Each year, the Community College of the Air Force awards more than 22,000 associate degrees to United States Airmen who have taken the time to diligently pursue their educational goals and complete job-related training. CCAF offers enlisted Airmen the opportunity to earn a degree that pertains to their Air Force career and is a significant stepping stone toward pursuing loftier education goals in the future.

Please join in congratulating the graduates of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base spring 2019 Community College of the Air Force graduating class as they are awarded their degrees. For the first time on record, the graduation will be at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in the Carney Auditorium May 16 at 11 a.m. All friends and family are invited and encouraged to attend this celebration to help recognize their accomplishment.
