The Air Force Historical Studies Office is located in Washington, D. C. at Joint Base Anacostia Bolling.  It is a part of the Air Force History and Museums Program and is primarily the historical book writing element of the program.  Historians at AFHSO also provide historical information, analysis, and perspective to Air Force leaders and their staffs to support planning, policy development, and decision making.
