Each year, Air Force Aid Society receives transformational support for our mission from Airmen, Guardians, and friends of service members who have made the Society part of their estate plans. These extraordinary gifts are integral to helping AFAS support our Airmen and Guardians. More importantly, they serve as a lasting legacy of the helping Airmen and Guardians philosophy driving all we do.
The two great loves of Lila Hess’s life were her husband, retired USAF Colonel Alfred Sidney “Sid” Hess and the U.S. Air Force that he served in for more than 30 years. It is a fitting and poetic legacy, then, that the estate of Mrs. Hess has been graciously gifted to the Air Force Aid Society to help Airmen in need of assistance.
