EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska --

“I want to thank our team who’s running the Air Force Assistance Fund campaign this year and really encourage all of our teammates and families here on Eielson to contribute. Last year was a real challenge, as the COVID pandemic was just starting. This year they’ve made it a lot easier for us to contribute and really take care of those Airmen and their families from the minute they enlist to retirement and beyond. So this is a key way we can take care of them.”


-Col. David Berkland, 354th Fighter Wing commander
