The following table contains over 1800 abbreviations and acronyms that are in use or have been used by the United States Air Force and/or its predecessor organizations. This table is comprehensive, but by no means complete.  To the greatest extent possible, the abbreviations and acronyms have been verified against official USAF source documents. When the source for a particle abbreviation or acronym has been verified, a number appears in the source column denoting which publication it was verified against. The list of sources can be found at the end of the table below.

Please be aware that when you are using this table to identify inscriptions on patches that many abbreviations or acronyms may have more than one meaning. In some cases, those additional meanings are not listed in this table. Further research may be required to determine the appropriate abbreviation/acronym that applies to a specific patch.

If you know of additional abbreviations or acronyms that are not listed here, please contact me to get it added to the table. When submitting an abbreviation or acronym, please provide a source document if at all possible.
