Our Airmen

and their Families

 

About Us

The Alamo Chapter Air Force Association is apart of the greater Air Force Association program. With over 200 chapters throughout the united states, The greater Air Force Associations exist to support and advocate for our existing Airmen and foster the creation of new Airmen.

Alamo Chapter of the Air Force Association

The Alamo Chapter of the Air Force Association was founded in 1946. We enjoyed the honor of being the largest chapter in the AFA for several years and currently rank #2 of more than 200 chapters around the world with more than 3,700 members. We are an independent, civilian, nonprofit aerospace organization. The civilian designation only means that we are not officially sponsored or supported by the US Air Force, but many of our members are active duty. There is no requirement to be affiliated with the military, however, to be a member. Active, Guard, Reserve, and Civil Service may join our organization.
