Air Force aides their own The seventh annual Air Force As- sistance Fund (AFAF) Campaign is well underway, and members of the Air Force family are being asked to contribute to our three affiliates— the Air Force Enlisted Men's Widows and Dependents Home, the Air Force Aid Society and the Air Force Vil- lage. The funds contributed during the campaign will enable these charit- able organizations to continue with their important work. As we move into the 1980s, the affiliates will be striving to fur- ther expand their capabilities to serve Air Force members and their dependents. Both retirement vil- lages possess substantial waiting lists and additional facilities are urgently needed. The Air Force Aid Society is assisting record numbers of personnel and loan and grant out- lays are the highest in history. All contributions to the Air Force Assistance Fund will again be distributed as the giver designates. The use of the payroll deduction plan is being encouraged because of its convenience. In recent years Air Force people have contributed generously to the Air Force Assistance Fund. I am confident this past trend will carry forward into the present campaign and that, once again, our members will demonstrate, their "Commitment to Caring." I urge you to join with me in spreading the word. James M. McCoy Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force LIFE SAVING AWARD—Rear Admiral Richard A.
