AFA Thanksgiving Statement

Thanksgiving is a special time and opportunity to show our appreciation and gratitude to the men and women of the U.S. military for their unyielding support to this nation. As we work to tackle the economic challenges, we pause for this occasion to speak of our appreciation to servicemen and women addressing the global challenges this nation faces. Their sacrifice and valor is unmistakable, and we wholeheartedly thank them. In addition, we are appreciative to our military family – the spouses, children and family of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coast guardsmen – who have had to sacrifice for our nation as well. We truly admire their courage.

And finally, we are so very thankful for the members and volunteers of AFA who put great time, dedication and effort in carrying out the many AFA initiatives year-round. With great pride we recognize that their continual support has been instrumental in fulfilling the goals in our mission: to educate, to advocate and to support on behalf of the Air Force. We could not be the “force behind the force” without them.

On behalf of AFA, we wish a joyous and peaceful Thanksgiving to all.
