Air Commando Foundation News

Your Air Commando Foundation continues to assist Air Commandos and their families in a host of ways. Not long ago, a recently retired second generation Air Commando's spouse contracted a very rare form of cancer which was not responding to normal treatment. The spouse was receiving treatments in a trial program not yet covered by Tri-Care and this was causing a great financial burden on the family. Our Board decided to assist with a sizable donation and we started a fund raiser to assist further. Additionally, there have been three recent non-combat active-duty casualties that have created financial burdens on young families left behind. Your Foundation, after thorough vetting by the Board of Directors along with USSOCOM and AFSOC agencies, voted to assist these families with financial aid to help meet their immediate needs. In these cases as in so many others, your Foundation fills the gap between what the government can provide and what is needed.

Letter to the ACF:

I would like to inform you that I received the check issued by Air Commandos yesterday. My family and I would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for your financial assistance, especially in our time of mourning. Your organization's generosity and support have provided us some solace knowing that we would not be financially burdened by repaying back the money we owed. It's times like these that I'm glad I'm a part of the greatest organization in the world where taking care of each other is a top priority. Again sir, thank you and please extend our appreciation to the Air Commandos for the aide you and your organization have provided me and my family. If there's anything I can do to repay you back, please let me know. Have a wonderful Air Force day.



We are pleased to announce that you can now make donations to Air Commando Foundation through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) # 40853.

Air Commando Foundation has proven itself as one of the most agile military charities. Almost all requests for assistance are met within 24 hours, some within hours!

The Air Commando Foundation has given back over $100,000 to Air Commandos, their families and the Special Operations Community over the last several years.

Here are a few examples of where ACF and your donations have helped:

• $10,000 for individual wounded airman rehabilitation
• $5,000 for immediate needs of fallen airman’s family
• $3,000 for therapeutic bed for severely wounded airman
• Several thousand dollars for wounded airman moves unsupported by government
• Support for wounded airman at Warrior Games
• Thousands for airmen travel expenses to be at side of hospitalized family members

The list goes on and the needs continue to grow. Air Commando Foundation will continue to support our special operators long into the future!
