Over the past five decades, the Air Force Sergeants Association has built a reputation as a stalwart advocate for Air Force enlisted members, past and present, and their families. Protect those who serve, and have served. AFSA represents its 100,000 members by advocating for their interests to America’s elected and military leaders. As a federally-chartered Veteran Service Organization, AFSA is able to lobby on Capitol Hill on behalf of its members. AFSA is organized in seven divisions across the U.S. and overseas; the heart of AFSA is its 132 chapters. Our Mission is to advocate improved quality of life and economic fairness that will support the well-being of the Total Air Force (Air Force Active Duty, Air National Guard, and Air Force Reserve Command) enlisted personnel and their families. The Air Force Sergeants Association was founded in 1961 by four Air Force NCOs who recognized the need for an organization to represent the voice of all enlisted personnel to America’s elected and military leaders. AFSA founders Benny McGehee, Lee Thompson, Virgil Perry and Don Ward established the association, and McGehee later became the first president, becoming the first representative of an all-enlisted organization to give testimony before the House Armed Services Committee. Today, AFSA represents its 110,00 members to Congressional members and Air Force leaders.
