Air Force Security Forces Association (AFSFA)
The Air Force Security Forces Association is a world-wide organization of Security Forces professionals with local chapters. Since its birth in 1986, it has been a significant factor in preserving and enhancing the honor and pride that are inherent in the Security Forces career field. Our membership spans generations, encompassing the military policemen (air provost marshals) of World War II and continuing over the years to the men and women who are serving their first hitch today.
Membership is open to anyone who has served honorably in the Army Air Corps MPs, Air Police, Security Police, or is now serving in the Security Forces career field–or that component of the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserves, IMAs, or DoD police officers.
Our Goals and Objectives
There is a distinctive relationship among the many men and women who have served or are serving in the Air Police, Security Police, or Security Forces career field. Some call it the Bond of the Blue Beret. Some of our more senior members can recall the days of the Sam Browne and the Air Police brassard. Whatever the tie, our members share a sense of responsibility for and a vision of the future of this career field.
We all understand the benefits to be derived from remembering the past while contributing to the future by belonging to and supporting this organization.
Our focus is on fulfilling what we consider to be the most important goals and objectives:
• Honoring the Past
• Recognizing the Present
• Preparing for the Future
The Air Force Security Forces Asociation was incorporated as a Texas not-for-profit association in August 1987. It grew out of a reunion in Las Vegas, Nevada, in June 1986. Captain (ret) Joe Grimes, publisher of the “Guardmount” newsletter (no longer published), set up the reunion. Approximately 75 people attended. This group was mostly retired Security Police officers and NCOs. These became the founding members of the Association.
