The 12 Days of AFA!

Each year, AFA compiles a list of great reasons why you should join or gift the gift of membership this holiday season! We released them on the AFA Facebook the twelve days prior to Christmas. Here's a recap:

On the first day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: a growing network of Air Force officials, policy-makers, industry experts, and other members who, like you, care deeply about airpower and the mission of AFA. Join today, and start taking part in all our benefits! Join today for only $45/yr or $110/3 years:!

On the second day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: The Mitchell Institute for Airpower Studies! This world class aerospace and cyberspace think tank continues to influence the national security debate. For more information about the Mitchell Institute go to

On the third day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: discounts on travel deals! AFA offers two travel programs to our members: Government Vacation Rewards and RCI. For affordable timeshares, cruises, flights and more, AFA knows you deserve a vacation! Visit

On the fourth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: four world class conferences! As a member, you have the opportunity to attend our conferences and symposiums at a heavily discounted rate. At these events you will hear from the top leadership of the Air Force, academia, industry and historical Air Force icons.

On the fifth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: concerts, ceremonies, and other events at the Air Force Memorial (link to fb page). AFA was instrumental in the vision and creation of the Memorial, a site of reverence and remembrance. Come visit and “like” the Air Force Memorial Page on Facebook!


On the sixth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: great deals on holiday gifts! Discounts are available through our online mall for members only! Shop using discounts and rebates at some of your favorite stores like Apple, Dell, and Microsoft. Shopping at the AFA Online Mall earns you rebate dollars from 1-20% of your purchase.

On the seventh day of Christmas, AFA gave to me (and many others for that matter!): more than $1.5 million in scholarships, grants, and awards annually. These programs encourage Air Force members to continue their education, provide funds to Air Force spouses working toward a degree, and administer grants that develop math and science skills. For more information and ways to get involved, go to

On the eighth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: access to the award-winning Air Force Magazine, the USAF Almanac, and the electronic news brief Daily Report, which reaches more than 130,000 readers worldwide. Be a part of that readership, sign up today!

On the ninth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: the chance to help future generations further their studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)—subjects that are vital to our security! Programs we sponsor--like CyberPatriot  and Visions of Exploration
--reach kids nationwide on a daily basis and show them an attainable and fun future!

On the tenth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: the opportunity to make tax-deductible donations that make a difference! At its core, the Air Force Association is a grassroots membership organization. Starting with the gift of membership, a donation, or the presentation of one of our Fellowships, you are allowing us to further our mission! For more information on contributions or gifts in honor of a loved one, check here:

On the eleventh day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: an advocate on Capitol Hill! We brief Congressional staffers on airpower issues, educating as we go! Through policy papers, debates, work with the Military Coalition, and interaction with people who can make a difference in the Pentagon and on the Hill we make sure that AFA is a presence that is heard!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, AFA gave to me: the perfect gift to give, membership in AFA! Keep up-to-date on what AFA is doing to protect your interests! Each year we release a Statement of Policy and Top Issues Brief to inform our members—and the world—of what we’re working on with the Air Force and on Capitol Hill. We want to share these tools with you!
