WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --
The annual Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) campaign is now officially underway. The AFAF is here to assist Active Duty, Reserve, Retired Military, and their families it times of need. Help comes in many forms: childcare during a stressful PCS, a grant for travel expenses for an emergency, emergency aid, scholarships, grants for medical care, loans, homes for retired AF veterans and their surviving spouses, Heartlink, or even grants for wheelchairs and prosthetics.
Across a wide breadth of circumstances, the AFAF exists to support the AF family. The campaign starts March 26th and runs through May 4th. Please engage with your unit’s AFAF representatives as they visit all sections at Whiteman AFB; take some time, and listen to what they have to say. The AFAF is all about Airmen helping Airmen; not only those who are serving now, but also the Airmen who have come before us, and those who have yet to begin their AF journey.
