Gabriel Chapter of the Air Force Association
Outside the Beltway Along the Aerospace Corridor.
Dear AFA Members and Friends,
Friends, as I begin my 2-year term as President of the Gabriel Chapter, I want to
express my appreciation to the membership for their vote of confidence and installing
a great chapter team. Beginning this month, we have a new Chapter Council that is committed
to fulfilling the mission of the Chapter and the Association with energy, integrity
Our chapter exists to support the mission of the Air Force Association -- to promote a dominant
United States Air Force and a strong national defense, and to honor Airmen and our Air Force
Heritage. To accomplish this Gabriel chapter will EDUCATE the public on the critical need for
unmatched aerospace power and a technically superior workforce to ensure U.S. national security
with our membership activities, community outreach, and speakers at chapter functions.

Chapter #433 is one of only four named after former chiefs of staff. Organized in 1988 and chartered in 1989, the Gabriel Chapter serves AFA members of the National Capital Region.
