Here at AFA, we’ve acknowledged April as our Volunteer Appreciation Month, giving us an opportunity to thank the many men and women who help make us the Force behind the Force. As a grassroots membership organization, AFA relies heavily on the support of our members throughout the world who volunteer their time and guidance to carry out the many initiatives we aim for. It is because of their commitment that we can thoroughly EDUCATE the public about the critical role of aerospace power in the defense of our nation, ADVOCATE aerospace power and a strong national defense, and SUPPORT the United States Air Force, the Air Force Family, and aerospace education.
For the remainder of this month, we will try to highlight a few of our volunteers (whether individuals or chapters). Volunteers are the strength and backbone of the Air Force Association. Since our founding, they have been instrumental in the fulfillment of the AFA mission. These volunteers inspire many through profound leadership, countless hours and immeasurable amounts of energy to AFA. We wholeheartedly thank them for all they do for Air Force Association.
