About us


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 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.
