Air Force Academy Professor Badge

The Air Force Academy Professor Badge is a military decoration of the United States Air Force which was first created in the 1980s. The badge recognizes those 23 Air Force colonels (and one brigadier general) who have been appointed by the Congress under US Code Title 10 as permanent professors and heads of academic departments, and as the Dean of Faculty, at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Air Force is the only branch of the United States armed forces to issue a badge for serving as a military academy professor.

Famous quotes containing the words badge, professor, air, force and/or academy:

    Repose and cheerfulness are the badge of the gentleman,—repose in energy.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I.- men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep- hole and missing laundry list school.... Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    I never approve, or disapprove, of anything now. It is an absurd attitude to take towards life. We are not sent into the world to air our moral prejudices. I never take any notice of what common people say, and I never interfere with what charming people do.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Force was his juices and force was his meat.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    The academy is not paradise. But learning is a place where paradise can be created.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)
