Air Force

This page includes information on casualty and family support services for the Air Force.

 

The Air Force Aid Society is a private, nonprofit organization that provides emergency financial assistance to Air Force members and their families, including interest-free loans, grants or a combination of both. The society maintains an open door policy that encourages individuals to apply for assistance when they feel an emergency situation exists. For surviving spouses and dependent minor orphans, the society provides emergency assistance at or shortly after the death of an Air Force member.

The Air Force Personnel Center provides answers to frequently-asked questions concerning casualty services, casualty assistance representatives and death benefits and allows users to submit additional questions.

The Air Force Wounded Warrior program was created in 2005 as a Department of Defense and Air Force initiative to provide personalized care to airmen who are separated or retired as a result of illness or injury received in support of Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom.
