Event Support: Air Force and DoD Events
"Being involved in CARE events and the Warrior Games taught me there is still ability in my disability. It taught me I'm not forgotten. I'm still part of the Air Force family. I don't feel alone anymore. Without AFA, we wouldn't be able to heal like that."
— Josh Leary, TSgt (Ret.)
WAP at the 2019 Warrior Games
The Wounded Airman Program kicked off our support with supporting team Air Force with Airman for Life grants.
Fourteen of the 40-member Air Force team and one caregiver were funded to attend through AFA's Airman for Life travel assistance.
We cheered on our Air Force Wounded Warriors at the Warrior Games Swimming Competitions and welcomed 304 athletes and 650 family members along with a host of coaches, community supporters, local Air Force leadership and more to AFA's Hospitality Suite. Wounded Warriors enjoyed refreshments, beverages, sweet treats from local bakeries, and activities for kids!
The Hospitality Suite was complete with an "Under the Sea" themed room with fun games, face painting for kids, a reading station, arts and crafts, a photo booth and plenty of activities for our little heroes!
