AFAS is here to help throughout the military journey

Military service is not an easy path to follow. But as Bradley, an Air Force Technical Sergeant, and his spouse Odhalea have discovered, no Airman or their family is alone in this journey.

The challenges faced by military families are not always more difficult than those faced by people in the private sector, but they are usually unique. The efforts of organizations like the NMFA and AFAS to alleviate the hardships of service members who are moved far from their social and family safety nets are greatly appreciated by those of us that have been helped. Thank you!

Incorporated in 1942, the Air Force Aid Society continues to meet the unique needs of Airmen and Guardians.
