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 Total Force 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.
Our mission is to promote a dominant United States Air Force and a strong national defense, and to honor Airmen and our Air Force Heritage. To accomplish this, we:
- EDUCATE the public on the critical need for unmatched aerospace power and a technically superior workforce to ensure U.S. national security.
- ADVOCATE for aerospace power and STEM education.
- SUPPORT the total Air Force family and promote aerospace education.
We will be the premier professional military and aerospace education association in the nation—dedicated to dominant air, space, and cyberspace power, a strong national defense, supporting the men and women of the United States Air Force, and world-class aerospace education.
