The AFNIC has a long and proud lineage, and now serves as the sixth generation AF central communications and information organization. AFNIC traces its history back to the Army Airways Communications System (AACS), which was organized on 15 November 1938 in the Directorate of Communications of the U.S. Army Air Corps. The official lineage of the AACS as a separate unit, began on 13 April 1943 with the constitution of the AACS Wing. The wing was soon reassigned directly to HQ Army Air Forces, on 14 July 1943. Major command status was reached with the addition of Headquarters (HQ) to the AACS name on 26 April 1944. On 13 March 1946, AACS was redesignated Air Communications Service (ACS) and reassigned to the Air Transport Command. The ACS was then redesignated the Airways and Air Communications Service (AACS) on 11 September 1946, and subsequently reassigned to the Military Air Transport Service on 1 June 1948. Airways and Air Communications Service became an Air Force major command again on 1 July 1961, and was simultaneously redesignated Air Force Communications Service (AFCS). AFCS was redesignated Air Force Communications Command (AFCC) on 15 November 1979.
