The Hilltop Times posted a great Commentary by SMSgt Bill Fortenberry from Davis-Monthan AFB about the Air Force Enlisted Village and its impact on him. He volunteered at the Air Force Enlisted Village when he was stationed at Tyndall AFB in 2009. SMSgt Fortneberry reminds us that AFEV is one of the four Air Force affiliate charities that is supported by the Air Force Assistance Fund.

Thank you, SMSgt Fortenberry!
The AFAF campaign begins on March 2, 2015 at Hill AFB and on March 23, 2015 at Davis-Monthan AFB.
We want to give a shout out to Vance Air Force Base for posting their kickoff event via Facebook and creating a news feed with AFAF information, http://1.usa.gov/1DevPt6. It’s a great way to share how bases support the annual AFAF tradition “Commitment to Caring” and meet their established goals!!
