The Air Force Association (AFA) announced its 2002 AFA Membership and Activity Awards.
We are delighted to announce that our Vice President and Mockup Restoration Coordinator, Tom Kemp (firstname.lastname@example.org), was honored as the AFA Member of the Year. The announcement was in the November 2002 edition of AIR FORCE Magazine. Tom served in the 23rd TASS flying (of course!) OV-10s.
This is no small feat. AFA (www.afa.org is a giant organization that spans the world and has over 150,000 members. For those of you not familiar with the AFA, here is some background:
The AFA organization is led by volunteer leaders at the national, state and local levels. AFA's state organizations and more than 200 chapters hold elections and conduct programs to increase public understanding of key national security issues in their communities. Programs range from luncheon and dinner activities to symposia and legislative roundtables with Congressional leaders. The Air Force Association's mission is to advocate aerospace power and a strong national defense; to support the United States Air Force and the Air Force Family; and to promote aerospace education to the American people.
Congratulations Tom! We are honored and proud to have you on our Board!
