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 Tuesday 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.

Next Meeting


Steak & Fish Fry

On 31 July we will have available for your social and dining pleasure a night at the San Diego Mission Bay Boat and Ski Club located at 2606 North Mission Bay Drive, San Diego (Pacific Beach).

We previously announced there will be a fish dinner option. This has changed due to unforeseen Galley staffing in the club.

We will still have the three size steak option with all the fixings but the alternates are now hamburger/cheeseburger and fries or onion rings, Philly cheesesteak and fries or onion rings, Crispy chicken salad, all for the price of $8.00 each. We will also have Chicken Tenders and Fries – $7; Bacon Cheddar Fries – $6; Greek Fries – $6; Garlic Fries – $5; Onion Rings – $5; French Fries – $5; Jalapeno Poppers (6 ea) – $5.

Parking is plentiful.  For those that desire to stay for the evening festivities, the band starts at 7:30 p.m.. For this event, we will have inside seating so we can all eat together.

We plan to start at 5:30 p.m. and ask that you RSVP by July 15, 2015 to Jack Porath via email at  jporath1@roadrunner.com.  PUT THE 31 JULY EVENT ON YOUR CALENDAR!  Jack Porath is also available to answer any of your questions about this fun event.
