Air force Assistance Fund Drive
The Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) campaign kicks off February 2, 2015. This annual campaign gives Airmen the opportunity to help their fellow Airmen, continuing the longstanding commitment to caring. The purpose of the AFAF is to raise funds for the four charitable affiliates that support the Air Force family. These four affiliates are the Air Force Aid Society, Air Force Enlisted Village, The Lemay Foundation and the Air Force Villages Charitable Foundation. Your contribution to AFAF will lend critical support to your fellow Airmen and their families - active duty and retired, officers and enlisted! Visit the afassistancefund.org site today to learn how to contribute and make a difference in the lives of Airmen.

The Hoffman Quints
My wife (Roxanna) and I found out that we were having Quintuplets and soon would have to move from NJ to AZ in order for them to have the best chances medically. Roxanna had to spend over 75 days in the hospital while I moved out here. Once I finally arrived, she gave birth to 5 seemingly healthy babies but this was only the beginning of our journey. Since then we have found out the large demand of five tiny little babies which turned into not so tiny dollars needed. They are growing faster than ever expected which means we needed expensive items like cribs, car seats, and diapers since they grew out of everything else which is where the Air Force Aid Society came into play. They generously granted money to us to pay for all these items. It was truly amazing and I could not be more thankful for what they did. We were doing everything in our power to get through the times and the AF Aid Society took a bit of the weight off our shoulders so we could focus on the babies instead of making ends meet. Now we are doing better than ever watching them grow and finally getting settled in our house. The new cribs look great and the financial support gave us much needed breathing room. Thanks again Air Force Aid Society! See more photos on our Facebook page: http://on.fb.me/1ub6RSv
