Founded in 1994, the DFC Society exists to honor those who have demonstrated heroism or extraordinary achievement in aerial flight that resulted in the award of the DFC. Our membership represents the continuum of time from the Wright Brothers to the present.

DFCS membership includes a diversity of rank, ethnicity, and gender, with officer and enlisted members from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard, along with a few civilian aviation pioneers.

We preserve the rich heritage and historical narratives of DFC recipients, and we educate the general public, especially the youth of America, on the values of courage, patriotism and character.
