Operation GRIT

Operation GRIT is for all Airmen across USAFE - AFAFRICA because every Airman Warrior is important! Its success depends on every Airman to be a leader in their own sphere of influence.

By definition, GRIT is courage, resolve and strength of character. USAFE - AFAFRICA Airman Warriors have courage and determination despite challenges in their way.

The Operation GRIT Mission:

  • We invest time and resources in what we value
  • Investing in Airmen is what we value
  • Invested Airmen will become the warriors we expect and need them to be
  • USAFE - AFAFRICA leaders are expected to invest, mentor and listen
  • Developing Airmen daily IS the mission
