Airman and Family Division: Airman and Family Readiness AND Retiree Services

The Secretary of the Air Force’s priority to “Take Care of Airmen” drives the Airman and Family Division’s (AFPC/DPFF) mission to provide unequaled operational oversight to 76 active duty Airman and Family Readiness Centers, offering programs and services in 15 core areas to nearly 1.7 million Airmen and families. The division also provides guidance to Retiree Affairs Offices, supporting nearly 700,000 retirees worldwide, conducts background research on Foreign Government Employment applicants and responds to Board of Corrections for Military Records requests regarding Survivor Benefit Entitlements. 

 

In addition, the Comprehensive Airman Fitness Operations section operationalizes AF CAF policy, manages logistics and develops/reviews curriculum for the Master Resilience Trainer Course, along with tracking the progress of Master Resilience and Readiness Assistant Trainers (MRT/RTA).

 

A recent Air Force Posture Statement stated, “We will take care of our incredible Airmen and protect our most important family programs by continuing to fully fund Military Tuition Assistance, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response programs, and Airman and Family Readiness Centers.”  Thanks to this senior leader stance on family programs, the outstanding support of AFPC leadership, and the inexhaustible efforts of our DPFF team comprised of nearly 30 subject matter experts, AFPC/DPFF will continue to lead the charge of building resilient families and ensuring a mission-ready force.

  • Family traditions: from first re-enlistment to the last

    It is often said, “When you join the Air Force, you join a family.” This saying hit close to home for Chief Master Sgt. Kati Grabham, 325th Fighter Wing command chief, as she stated the oath of enlistment for the last time led by her son, 2nd Lt. Cory Garcia.
  • Airlifter levels up

    At a young age Edwin Bowser was introduced to the wrong side of the law, but an arrest that happened more than 20 years ago turned it all around and led him to be the man he is today.
  • Why does my kid’s school need to know we are military?

    Every year my kid’s school asks me – multiple times – if we are military. It doesn’t matter where we live, they always want to know … during registration, enrollment, and mid-semester! Why do they care? Why does it matter? Should I tell them? For the longest time, I answered “No,” because I figured it was none of their business. It turns out I was WRONG! There are at least three reasons why schools ask for military affiliation.
