Together, We Are Airmen for Life

When we raised our right hands and recited the oath to the United States Air Force, we became bestowed with a lasting honor. We don’t take that lightly. Whether an active Airman, civilian, cadet or family member, we all believe in a dominant Air Force.

The Air Force Association connects brave Airmen who commit their lives to protecting the greater good of our country. And for all who support the importance of aerospace power, we welcome you to the AFA community. Through a network of more than 200 chapters, we are here to share, support and sustain your journey as an Airman for Life.
