Baby Olivia
 
The Augugliaro Family
space

Meet baby Olivia! Born at just 28 weeks and under 2 lbs, Olivia is doing great and is now home. AFAS helped Olivia’s dad, an Air Force Reserve SSgt activated on Title 10 orders, to make the long trips to the hospital to be with Olivia upon her birth and weeks in NICU. Our base representative, Angela Sanclemente summed it up nicely when she said "Cases like this make it all worth it!" We are so glad we could help.
  
The Air Force Aid Society is there when you need us.  Meet the Augugliaro Family. The Augugliaro's 3 year old daughter, Anolani is medically fragile and requires around the clock care 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Although the Air Force is currently assisting the family with respite care it came to the attention of Air Force Aid Society that we could help the family with additional respite care on the weekends after Mrs. Augugliaro undergoes surgery. We thank the Augugliaro’s for sharing their story and encourage others to always come to Air Force Aid when you need help!

Alert! Questionable "Baby Bundles" Website

The following is extracted from a June 25, 2014 "CID E-Alert"

Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID), Fort Meade, MD has received information concerning an apparently recently developed Internet Website - "Baby Bundles" (http://happybabybundles.weebly.com) which appears to be geared specifically to military personnel and their family members.

A cursury review of the website by CID identified several aspects of concern of the information being solicited to potential users.  In the website's "Assistance" link on the home page, it was noted in order to obtain "Emergency Assistance" which the site defines as "Emergency Disaster, baby born weeks early, etc.", the website requries an applicant to submit a current copy of the Servicemember's Leave and Earning Statement and current DD Form 214.

Pending further inquiry by appropriate agencies, the ownership and actual intent of this website should be considered questionable, based on the type of confidential and personally identifiable information (PII) being solicted for their services.

PLEASE NOTE:  THIS WEBSITE IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THE AIR FORCE AID SOCIETY OR OUR BUNDLES FOR BABIES PROGRAM!

Wounded Warrior Assistance

Air Force Aid Society Headquarters caseworker Scott Hald was inspired to reach out to retired SSgt Daniel Meyer after reading an article featuring him in the Washington Post.  SSgt Meyer suffered debilitating injuries as a result of his service in Iraq and Afghanistan and is largely confined to his home.  He has discovered a love of playing golf on a simulator and Scott believed we could help him finish raising the money to have one installed in his home.  Scott contacted SSgt Meyer and was able to coordinate with Foresight Sports to finish paying for the simulator and installation.  The Air Force Aid Society is honored to be able to contribute to this project on behalf of SSgt Meyer.  Following are links to the Washington Post article and Daniel Meyer’s blog.
