The annual Air Force Assistance Fund campaign kicks off March 25 giving us all another opportunity to help our fellow Airmen when they need it most.

The AFAF campaign supports four charities dedicated to caring for Airmen from induction through retirement and beyond.

The four charities are the Air Force Aid Society, General and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation, the Air Force Village, and the Air Force Enlisted Village. They are an example of Air Force people taking care of their own, Airmen helping Airmen.

I know these are uncertain times for many people given the impacts of sequestration. For those of you able to volunteer time or donate financially, I can assure you your contributions are especially appreciated this year.

Soon you should be seeing a key worker visit your work center to let you know all about the charities, answer any questions you may have, and give you the opportunity to donate.

My installation project officer is 1st Lt. Joseph Terndrup. He can be contacted at (850) 883-3227 or DSN 875-3227 if you have any questions.

Thank you for continuing our proud tradition in our "Commitment to Caring" through giving to the AFAF Campaign.
