Afas memorial honor roll
Established in 1943
The Memorial Honor Roll was officially established in 1943 and it was formally introduced in our first Annual Report in 1946. The following is an excerpt from our 1946 Annual Report:
"The Memorial Division of the Air Force Aid Society was created to perpetuate the names of deceased persons in whose memory contributions have been made to the Society. It is a means of honoring the memory of a relative or friend in a more substantial way than by sending flowers to the family. The name and date of death of the one so honored is inscribed in the Memorial Roll as a permanent tribute to their memory. In all cases it is endeavored to have available for those interested, a brief historical file on each person whose name is entered on the Memorial Roll. Hundreds of persons and organizations wishing to honor the memory of a relative or friend have contributed to the Air Force Aid Society through the Memorial Roll. The money collected in this way goes into the General Fund and is used to carry out the aims and purposes of the Society as set forth in its Certificate of Incorporation."
