AFAS News and Announcements
Wounded Warrior Assistance

Air Force Aid Society Headquarters caseworker Scott Hald was inspired to reach out to retired SSgt Daniel Meyer after reading an article featuring him in the Washington Post.  SSgt Meyer suffered debilitating injuries as a result of his service in Iraq and Afghanistan and is largely confined to his home.  He has discovered a love of playing golf on a simulator and Scott believed we could help him finish raising the money to have one installed in his home.  Scott contacted SSgt Meyer and was able to coordinate with Foresight Sports to finish paying for the simulator and installation.  The Air Force Aid Society is honored to be able to contribute to this project on behalf of SSgt Meyer.  Following are links to the Washington Post article and Daniel Meyer’s blog.

Congratulations to Columbus AFB for being the first base to exceed their AFAF dollar goal -- 130% of goal to be exact!  We hope this is just one of many bases that will exceed their goals.  We can't wait to see which base will be the first to exceed their dollar goal AND achieve 50% or better Active Duty participation!
