About AFAF

OUR MISSON & PURPOSE: Our purpose is to support the men and women of our Armed Forces serving throughout the world to keep America free, and to provide goods and services to their immediate families remaining at home.

We are pleased to publish key excerpts from many of these letters. We would like to hear from you and look forward to hearing your thoughts on how we are doing.
