USAF Security Forces Creed- I am a security force member. I hold allegiance to my country, devotion to duty, and personal integrity above all. I wear my shield of authority with dignity and restraint, and promote by example high standards of conduct, appearance, courtesy, and performance. I seek no favor because of my position. I perform my duties in a firm, courteous, and impartial manner, irrespective of a person's color, race, religion, national origin, or sex. I strive to merit the respect of my fellow airmen and all with whom I come in contact.

- Order of the Bayonet winners- The bayonet is a close-in defensive weapon used as a last resort to prevent being overrun by an attacker. The primary wartime mission of the security forces is defending air bases and the resources they contain. The security forces must defeat the enemy close-in to be successful; therefore, the bayonet is symbolic of the security forces mission.
- Ready for Anything- Article about Air Mobility Warfare Center's 421st Training with quotes from Ranger Harper.
- "We tell our instructors not to be 'the sage on the stage, but the guide on the side," said Master Sgt. Benjamin Harper, CSOC superintendent. "We want them prepared and knowledgeable when it comes their turn to deploy. So we teach them, everything from what end of the gun the bullet comes out of and what type of underwear to pack to how to throw hand grenades and dig a field latrine. You'd be amazed at how many people haven't had the pleasure of digging a field latrine."
- CSOC is in its second year at Fort Dix, and is an evolution of the Phoenix Ace and Volant Scorpion courses that were taught at Little Rock AFB, Ark.
- History of the The Air Mobility Warfare Center- References to Volant Scorpion and Phoenix Ace.
