Airmen Helping Airmen

Air Force Aid Society

Older than the U.S. Air Force itself, AFAS traces its roots back to 1942 and the great 5-Star General Henry “Hap” Arnold. His vision of an organization that embodied the ideal of Airmen helping Airmen still drives our mission today. Tune in and learn how we’re still delivering on this mission and continuing to make an impact in the lives of so many Air Force families.
