Air Force Association to form local chapter tgfre ,3nbiatta <ga«tJ» / Wednesday, June 12, 1985— Poge 11 It has been announced that activities are presently underway for the creation, of the Jimmy Stewart Chapter of the Air Force Association .here in Indiana. The National Headquarters of the AFA is in the process of assigning all "members-at-large" to local chapters and, it was through this activity that the impetous for a local chapter was born. It was felt that the area could indeed support such a chapter and the name of Mr. Stewart was chosen for several reasons. First he is a native of the town and is a retired Air Force General and charter member of AFA it was felt to be a fitting tribute to the nationally known celebrity- The Air Force Association is comprised of more than 220,000 members nationally and is dedicated to preservation of peace through adeguate aerospace strength and a concern for the welfare of those who serve the Air Force. The" AFA is also a professional society that represents all elements of the Air Force family. Military and civilian, active and retired, reserve forces and Civil Air Patrol, cadet and veteran, civil service and aerospace worker, all of whom comprise the Air Force Association. Presently the Air Force Association is growing at a rate of about 10 percent per year. It is non profit and non political". It is the founder of the Aerospace Education Foundation — an educational organization devoted to the future of aerospace and sponsor of the national Aerospace Education Center. On a local basis, AFA chapter members help build and strengthen ties between the Air Force and surrounding communities. Through a variety of chapter programs, members work with ROTC and Junior ROTC and CAP units, help support community projects, develop local scholarship funds, • and provide knowledgeable speakers for other community based organizations. AFA also works closely with all elements of the Air Force — through councils and committees — both learn of specific problems and to serve as an integral part of"Air Force recognition programs. AFA awards are among those most coveted by Air Force personnel, and AFA's Outstanading Airman program is widely recognized as the most prestigious award made to enlisted personnel of any service. In all these activities, the Air Force Association works to serve the nation — and those who serve — with pride irrthe past and faith in the future. Among AFA's membership are many notable national figures in addition to Jimmy Stewart. For example, President Reagan is a charter member of AFA, as are Senator Barry Goldwater, and General Chuck Yeager, to name just a few. AFA's national goals create a framework for Association action that is carried out at both national and local levels. Nationally, Air Force Magazine provides respected forum for aerospace related issues, and AFA symposiums held in major cities throughout the country provide in- depth focus on aerospace matters of national concern. Equally important, AFA's annual Statement of Policy, debated and approved by delegates to the national convention, documents specific Air Force needs and highlights Association policy for the coming year. AFA's 1985 Statement of Policy is keyed to the theme that "freedom and peace ... must be built on the nation's firm resolve not to lose ei- ther and the military means to safeguard both." And it concludes by saying that "peace through strength is not just a slogan" but rather an end-state that "must become a fact of life." With this Policy Statement as their guide, AFA members and staff seek to gain the widest possible citizen understanding of the need to keep the Air Force properly manned and equipped. This is an effort that goes on not only in Washington but across the nation so that the ultimate decision makers — the voters — can be effective in influencing their elected representatives.
