AFSA Retired and Veterans Affairs Newsletter – January 2012

Written By MSgt (Ret) Dale B. Nelson

Chairman International Legislative Committee

As an Association we can and will begin this year with an energy and confidence we call Patriotism and the American spirit. We know we control our own destiny, we believe deep down inside that working together we can make each New Year better than the old…..full of the optimism and hope we renew our faith that as dedicated enlisted men and women we still have the power to better our lives, and let us resolve to face the challenges of the new year holding that conviction firmly in our hearts. That, after all, is our greatest strength and our greatest gift as Airmen and their families.” Attitude is a reflection of Gratitude!” A grateful heart results in a joyful spirit; however, the road ahead can only be traversed with a Positive Attitude. Membership strength is the key ingredient in making our voice heard on Capitol Hill; therefore, it is every member’s inherent responsibility to help grow our beloved AFSA. For the first time in more than a decade our Association grew in numbers making us a leader among the other members of the Military Coalition.

2012 is upon us, with all of the formidable challenges awaiting us, and our AFSA team has renewed our resolve and redoubled our efforts in fighting for the entitlements we so richly deserve. We pray that you, too, are renewed, and we look forward to standing side by side with you in defending the promises made, with a deep sense of gratitude for generations of Airmen gone before, and in thanksgiving to God, for His endowment of Liberty!
