Happy 68th Birthday usaf!
In celebration of the Air Force's Birthday, the Air Force Aid Society is launching the 5-Star Circle. This monthly giving program is an easy and valuable way for you to support Airmen and their families. The name 5-Star Circle is a tribute to the Society's founder General Henry H. Arnold, the only 5-star General in the history of the Air Force. At the outset of World War II, General Arnold and his wife Bee became increasingly concerned that mission demands would put incredible stress on Air Corps members and their families, and acted to create a relief organization that grew to become the Air Force Aid Society. Since then, AFAS has helped hundreds of thousands of Airmen and their family members in times of need.
When you become a member of the 5-Star Circle, you will join a special group of people helping Airmen and continuing the legacy of General and Mrs. Arnold. To learn about 5-Star Circle benefits and to become a member, please click on the button below.
The Hoffman Quints
My wife (Roxanna) and I found out that we were having Quintuplets and soon would have to move from NJ to AZ in order for them to have the best chances medically. Roxanna had to spend over 75 days in the hospital while I moved out here. Once I finally arrived, she gave birth to 5 seemingly healthy babies but this was only the beginning of our journey. Since then we have found out the large demand of five tiny little babies which turned into not so tiny dollars needed. They are growing faster than ever expected which means we needed expensive items like cribs, car seats, and diapers since they grew out of everything else which is where the Air Force Aid Society came into play. They generously granted money to us to pay for all these items. It was truly amazing and I could not be more thankful for what they did. We were doing everything in our power to get through the times and the AF Aid Society took a bit of the weight off our shoulders so we could focus on the babies instead of making ends meet. Now we are doing better than ever watching them grow and finally getting settled in our house. The new cribs look great and the financial support gave us much needed breathing room. Thanks again Air Force Aid Society! See more photos on our Facebook page: http://on.fb.me/1ub6RSv
