The people running for office this year are Dick Jeffreys, President; Gene Alfaro, Vice President; Jim Trageser, Secretary; and Jack Porath, Treasurer.

All current Chapter members present are eligible to vote. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor as long as the person being nominated is either present to accept his or her nomination or the nomination has previously been coordinated with Chapter President, Dick Jeffreys.

Contact Dick at or 858.829.3799 (leave a voicemail) if you have any questions or nominations.

The speaker at this meeting is Graham Wright, Assistant Director of the Fort Rosecrans/Miramar National Cemeteries.

If you are thinking about final arrangements in one of our national cemeteries, he will give you direction on how to plan and should be able to answer any and all of your questions.

With a hero's welcome, the Gary Sinise Foundation brought WWII veterans and their guardians to The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. One-of-a-kind experience that included a tour of this incredible museum, as well as entertainment, celebratory meals and an opportunity for community with their fellow veterans.

Our chapter has over 800 members in the San Diego area. Our purpose is to be the force behind the force in our local community.

We support the people and the missions of the local Air Force units in San Diego. We also support retired Air Force members locally providing a valuable link to the Air Force and its global mission.

Our members are a positive force in the community supporting local schools and students. We meet the last Thursday of every second month, usually at Filippi's Pizza.

Our meetings are open to all members and prospective members. We hope you can become involved with your local Air Force Association Chapter.

Thanks for joining us for our 14th Annual golf tournament to benefit scholarships supporting the young men and women cadets of Detachment 75 of the Reserve Officers Training Program (AFROTC) at San Diego State University.

These future officers of the United States Air Force appreciate your support to help them succeed as leaders serving our nation.
