The annual Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) campaign began on 7 March 2022, giving us all another opportunity to help our fellow Airmen and Guardians when they need it most.  The AFAF campaign supports four charities that are dedicated to caring for Airmen and Guardians from induction through retirement years.  The four charities are the Air Force Aid Society, the Air Force Enlisted Village, the General and Mrs. Curtis E. LeMay Foundation, and the Air Force Villages Charitable Foundation. They are an example of Air and Space Force people taking care of their own—in a “For Airmen & Guardians, By Airmen & Guardians,” one of a kind campaign.  

Our annual campaign demonstrates this fact:  we take care of our own!  Our base goal for this year is $56,702.  You will get an email from your unit’s key workers and see them visiting your team soon.  You have the opportunity to participate in fundraising events by way of helping or donating.  Please get involved!  I invite our private organizations like the Chiefs Group, Top 3, CGOs and units to be creative and have fun with your fundraisers for AFAF over the next six weeks.

While the average Air Force base has historically had between 9% and 30% participation rate from their active duty members, Team Dyess is far ABOVE average! Thank you for continuing our proud tradition of, “Commitment to Caring” through giving to the AFAF Campaign.

"Please learn about this great effort, participate, and consider giving this year to our fellow Airmen and Guardians," said Col. Joseph Kramer, 7th Bomb Wing commander. "Thanks for serving at America's Lift and Strike Base!"
