Last year, ACC Airmen, their spouses and their children received almost $2 million in grants and loans from the Air Force Aid Society to help cover costs for basic living or medical expenses, emergency travel or child care. Our Airmen received another $236,000 in grants to help them further their education. When you can give, the Air Force Assistance Fund gives back
Since 1942, the AFAF campaign has been run by the Air Force family to help the Air Force family. Whether we are aware of it or not, each of us knows someone who has been helped by the Fund. Anything we can do today helps ensure that assistance will be available for other Airmen and other families when they need it tomorrow.

Moore) Pararescueman embodies Service Before Self
U.S. Air Force pararescuemen play a very important role in the U.S. Air Force mission by recovering and providing medical care to isolated personnel in combat zones. They have a monumental responsibility to uphold the Air Force Core Value of “Service before self.” One Airman decided to go above and beyond this core value by spending his final day in Arizona educating high school students about the pararescue mission and the importance of the Air Force Core Values and having a good education. Rather than spend his last day relaxing and preparing to move to his next installation, Staff Sgt. Gary, 48th Rescue Squadron pararescueman, transported various forms of medical and extrication equipment to Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona. He displayed the equipment to three sports medicine and emergency medical service classes and explained the importance of each instrument. After his explanation, Gary allowed students to examine the tools.
