Paula Roy Joins AFA Staff, Heads Airmen and Family Programs

Paula Roy, spouse of retiring Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Roy, joins the staff of the Air Force Association, as the Director of Airmen and Family Programs, a newly established initiative. This program will help AFA expand the support provided to Airmen and families.

This will include exploring new opportunities, coalition building and launching new programs. These varied programs are vital but core to AFA’s long-term health and significance because they tangibly demonstrate the Association’s commitment to Airmen, spouses, and the greater Air Force family.

"In an effort to better support our Airman and their families, AFA is launching an Airman and Families Program initiative and they have asked for my assistance,” said Paula Roy. “What a better way for me to be able to continue to serve and support those who are fighting for the freedoms I enjoy every day! I’m truly grateful for this opportunity!”

Paula has been a chief supporter for spouses for years, giving many a voice to address their concerns. During her husband’s time on active duty, Paula took a strong interest in airmen and their families. Over the past 3.5 years, she has visited U.S. bases around the world where spouses have been able to discuss with her the issues they face. She has also advocated for the Key Spouse program, in which each unit commander designates a spouse as the liaison between families and senior leadership.
