After proving its strategic, tactical, and defensive abilities the Air Force broke off from the U.S. Army and became its own branch of the military on September 18th, 1947. Today, Zeiders joins in the celebration of the men and women who support the defense of our nation in the air. The Air Force provides air and space superiority; intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; rapid global mobility and strike; and command and control. Many Zeiders’ employees have an affiliation with the Air Force as a member, a Reservist, Veteran, spouse, adult child or parent. Zeiders is proud of our people and inspired by our shared values of integrity, service before self, and striving for excellence in all we do. Happy Birthday Air Force!
