Sword Worn by the USAF Officer
History & Tradition: : : Archived manuals portrayed Air Force officers wearing an Army saber because of the Army Air Corps roots. But again, the current uniform regulation does not have a sword/saber section. For formal organizational functions, you may want to check with your chain of command prior to an event requiring sword and saber usage.
Base Honor Guards: The US Air Force Honor Guard from Bolling AFB has an USAF Honor Guard Training Manual containing a sword and saber section. This is a great training guide designed specifically for Ceremonial Guardsmen, but it is also the only current USAF regulation covering any type sword usage. For Base Honor Guards, the manual has officers using Army sabers and enlisted using the Air Force sword.
