Headquartered at Barksdale Air Force Base in the communities of Bossier City and Shreveport, La., Eighth Air Force is one of two active-duty numbered air forces in Air Force Global Strike Command. The Eighth Air Force and Joint-Global Strike Operation Center's mission is to safeguard the United States of America and assure our Allies through global strike on demand. The flexible, conventional and nuclear strategic mission gives Eighth Air Force the ability to deploy forces and engage enemy threats both from home station or forward positioned, anywhere and at any time. 

Our motto is "Peace Through Strength."
