Colonel Bradley L. Pyburn is the Commander of the 67th Cyberspace Wing (67 CW), Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. The 67 CW is the Air Force’s newest combat wing, serving as AFCYBER’s execution arm for generating, projecting, and sustaining combat power through 5 cyberspace weapon systems.

He also ensures the readiness and employment of Airmen to conduct network ops, defense, attack, exploitation and telecomm monitoring for the Air Force, combatant commands, and national agencies.
Prior to assuming his current position, Colonel Pyburn was the Director of Communications, Headquarters Air Combat Command, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia. In this role, he was responsible for cyberspace and communications policy, resource advocacy, program management, and cyberspace support for the command’s 34 wings, 1,300 aircraft, 19 bases, and 70 worldwide operating locations with 94,000 active-duty and civilian personnel.
Colonel Pyburn received his commission as a distinguished graduate of Officer Training School in 1995. A career cyberspace operations officer, he has held diverse operational and staff positions, including the Air Staff and Joint Task Force-Global Network Operations. Colonel Pyburn’s commands include the 624th Operations Center, where he provided command and control for two Cyberspace Wings and seven cyberspace weapon systems, while directing operations and defense of the $14 billion Air Force Network. He also commanded the 332nd Expeditionary Communications Squadron, where he was responsible for the largest command and control network in Iraq supporting a joint base of 25,000 personnel.
AFCEA International (the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association) directly supports the community nationally through the AFCEA Educational Foundation and locally through the chapters with scholarships and awards to students with degree programs in the sciences.
The Alamo Chapter has awarded educational scholarships in excess of $350,000. The prime method of generating the money to support our scholarship program is through the annual symposium and exhibition, known as the Alamo ACE.
The Alamo chapter sponsors monthly luncheons and other networking events designed to promote the free and ethical exchange of information between the uniformed military services, government civilians and private industry - with a particular focus on the cyber, medical IT, training and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) career fields.
Through our Young AFCEANs group (ages 40 and under), the chapter also promotes mentoring and career growth opportunities for members in a variety of ways.

Alamo Young AFCEANS and
the Warrior and Family Support Center
The Alamo Young AFCEANs provide year-round support for the Warrior and Family Support Center at Fort Sam Houston. Part of this effort entails an ongoing donation drive -- with collection bins coming to each of the monthly luncheons.
Warriors and their families often come to the center with very little. Every-day essentials can greatly improve the quality of their lives. Here are items you can donate to make a difference the lives of our San Antonio military families:
- Diapers (newborn, size 1, size 2)
- Baby wipes
- Chips/individually wrapped snacks and candy
- Hot chocolate
- Gift cards for Target or Wal-Mart
- Movie gift cards
