Subaru Share the Love 

Subaru Shares the Love with Air Commandos!

The Share the Love® event is going on right now until January 2, 2018. It was established by Subaru of America, Inc. as a way to bring Subaru owners together to make a difference in the community while showcasing its Subaru vehicles.

The ACA encourages our members along the Emerald Coast area to spread the word to friends and family members who are shopping for a new car to check out the Subaru of Fort Walton Beach dealership. Please stop by their showroom and let their amazing staff show you why a Subaru is the perfect choice for your new vehicle!

Subaru of America, Inc. donates $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 16, 2017 – January 2, 2018 to any of the following charities:
o Air Commando Foundation (Fort Walton Beach's hometown charity)
o Make-A-Wish ®
o Meals on Wheels America®
o National Park Foundation

At the culmination of this year, SOA and its retailers hope to exceed a grand total of $115 million donated since the creation of Share the Love to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the event.

ACJ Vol 6 Issue 2 Allied Force

"This edition of Air Commando Journal highlights the contributions of AFSOC in OAF to include the AC-130U’s first taste of combat and two successful rescues of fighter pilots who were shot down in Serbia. The first shoot-down and rescue of a F-117 stealth fighter pilot happened very early in the conflict and was an extremely traumatic event for the Air Force....[The rescue] was another great demonstration of the flexibility Air Commandos bring to the fight and I was extremely proud to play a small part in the overall effort. "


-- Eugene Haase, Maj Gen, USAF (Ret)
Former (and last) 55 SOS/DO and AFSOC Vice Commander

Foundation: Supporting Air Commandos & Their Families

Air Commando Foundation

“Thanks to the Air Commando Association [Foundation] for their passionate and compassionate care of our force. Once again, when a need for benevolence was identified they quickly answered the call. For all the gracious organizations out there that care for our wounded, ill, and in need teammates, the ACA [Foundation] is by far the most responsive and has the greatest latitude to give. Hats off to Maj Gen-retired Secord and Col-retired Barnett. What you’ve done with ACA is remarkable...and very much appreciated by AFSOC leadership and our great force of Air Commandos! HOOYAH, ACA!!"
