The U.S. Air Force Band's Max Impact has made unique contributions to our Airman culture, writing career field-specific songs for the Honor Guard ("Stand") and Air Force Special Operations ("Send Me"). However, for their next project, the members of the band wanted to broaden the scope of their message. The result of this desire for force-wide inclusivity is the song "American Airman," which was written by Technical Sgt. Nalani Quintello and Senior Master Sgt. Matt Ascione, both members of Max Impact.
