About AAFM

The Association of Air Force Missileers is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization for all who have operated, maintained, defended, acquired, sustained, or supported the USAF nuclear missile systems.

Our membership includes over 4,000 former and current missileers and civilians who have served in our USAF nuclear missile systems, as well as friends of missileers. Our members represent every USAF missile system from the earliest development programs in the 1940s to current and future missile systems, representing all areas of support of Air Force missiles and every rank.

our Heritage

The primary goal of AAFM is to preserve the history of USAF missile systems and the people who operate, maintain, defend, acquire, sustain, or support them.

AAFM has provided  $300,000+ to museums for missile projects.

Recognizing Outstanding Missileers

AAFM sponsors two annual AF Global Strike Command awards, the Payne trophy for missile maintenance and the Phillips trophy for missile operations. We provide mementos for the participants at each Global Strike Competition, and we are a sponsor of AF enlisted recognition programs.

Keeping Missileers Informed

The periodic newsletter features current and historical articles, information about unit reunions and other meetings and other articles of interest. Monthly e-mail updates provide members with the latest news and special information. Articles and stories by members are regularly featured.

National and Regional Meetings

Every two years, members of the association gather at a national meeting. These meetings often include tours of current and historical missile facilities, feature guest speakers, socializing at business meetings and more. Smaller groups of members gather periodically throughout the year at current missile bases and other locations for briefings on USAF programs, to visit missile facilities or museums, or to discuss association programs. Contact the AAFM for potential speaking opportunities or historical discussions, or join the AAFM today!

AAFM assists organizations planning reunions by providing lists of members who served in these organizations and providing help in publicizing the events.
