The General James H. Doolittle Leadership Center

As we share thanks for our many blessings that stem from the opportunity to live in freedom this Thanksgiving, I am again reminded of General James Doolittle, who founded our Air Force Association on the “Spirit of a Volunteer.”  American freedom is built on the backs of those who volunteered and answered the nation’s call. And as Gen Doolittle said years ago, nothing is stronger than the heart of our AFA volunteers. We can never thank them enough.
