Members of Keesler Air Force Base are celebrating the 70th Birthday of the U.S. Air Force with an Air Force Ball 6 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Bay Breeze Event Center here.

The Air Force has been breaking barriers since 1947, dominating air, space and cyberspace domains, while looking toward the future of Multi-doman Command and Control and the Airmen who will help to keep the U.S. Air Force the greatest on the planet.

The ball is an annual Air Force-wide tradition celebrating the heritage and history of the Air Force. Attendees will dress in formal or 1940s attire for this gala style event.

Media interested in covering the event should RSVP to the Public Affairs office no later than noon Sept. 14. Call (228) 377-1179 or email
