MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. --
Is tuition assistance an important benefit to you? Is protecting the commissary, Post 9/11 GI bill and Veterans Affairs care policies something you’re passionate about? Are you interested in advocating for annual pay raises for military members? If so, consider becoming a member of the Air Force Sergeants Association.
AFSA is a platform to preserve and advance the enlisted corps’ benefits.
Membership is open to active-duty enlisted members, guard and reservists, veterans and dependents. This organization works to preserve the benefits many Airmen and their families depend on while serving and after separation by acting as a direct line of communication to voice concerns.
The group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. in the Grizzly Bend.
AFSA meetings are an outlet for members to discuss policies, proposed legislation and potential changes in benefits.
From Advocacy Campaigns on Voter Voice and the AFSA Legislative Action Center to writing letters to local congressional representatives, AFSA members work to campaign for Airmen’s rights.
If you are interested in joining AFSA, contact Tech. Sgt Kelly Hamilton or Staff Sgt. Paris Lucas Chamberlain for notifications on future meetings and events.
Overall, AFSA urges Airmen to take an interest in government and policies that may affect them. Let your voice be heard.
