AIR FORCE AID  SOCIETY

The Air Force Aid Society is the official charity of the U.S. Air Force and has been meeting the unique needs of the Airmen and their families since 1942. It provides emergency financial assistance with no-interest loans and grants consisting of a Falcon Loan up to $1,000 or a Standard Loan to eligible military members for basic needs such as basic living expenses, emergency leave or unexpected vehicle repairs.

IN-PROCESSING


In processing begins at your unit. Immediately upon arrival at Holloman, notify your sponsor and/or report to your unit orderly room. Your unit will direct you to the Military Personnel Flight. A mandatory appointment will be given to all airmen for Holloman Newcomers Orientation (HNO). In addition, all hand carried medical, dental and educational records will be collected by the customer support representative.




IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS TO HAND CARRY


Important documents to hand carry include your orders, lodging confirmation number, sponsor's phone number, commander's phone number, birth certificates, marriage license, social security cards, car registration, pet health certificates and vaccination records, school records and immunizations records.




SPONSORSHIP


Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. But, for many newcomers, a sponsor adds that personal touch. A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request a sponsor through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status. We also recognize that the service member isn’t the only one affected by a move, so spouses can also receive training to become a sponsor. To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their duties including:

  • Contacting the service member and family with an introductory email
  • Staying in contact with the service member throughout the moving process
  • Sending information about the new community and duty assignment, responding to questions and providing information about resources
  • Confirming transportation and lodging arrangements
  • Helping with post office arrangements
  • Meeting service members and family members upon arrival
  • Going with service members to unit check-in point
  • Introducing service members to the Military and Family Support Center and loan closet, if it’s available
  • Familiarizing service members and families with the installation and key locations, like the commissary
Note: Responsibilities may vary based on service-specific policies and guidance. Overall, the Sponsorship Program aims to do the following:
  • Provide newcomers with a sense of belonging
  • Ease the transition for inbound members and their family members
  • Help newcomers make informed decisions
  • Cultivate new friendships
  • Improve morale
For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact the installation’s Relocation Assistance Program office at the Airman & Family Readiness Center.

Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. But, for many newcomers, a sponsor adds that personal touch. A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request a sponsor through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status. We also recognize that the service member isn’t the only one affected by a move, so spouses can also receive training to become a sponsor. To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their duties including:

  • Contacting the service member and family with an introductory email
  • Staying in contact with the service member throughout the moving process
  • Sending information about the new community and duty assignment, responding to questions and providing information about resources
  • Confirming transportation and lodging arrangements
  • Helping with post office arrangements
  • Meeting service members and family members upon arrival
  • Going with service members to unit check-in point
  • Introducing service members to the Military and Family Support Center and loan closet, if it’s available
  • Familiarizing service members and families with the installation and key locations, like the commissary
Note: Responsibilities may vary based on service-specific policies and guidance. Overall, the Sponsorship Program aims to do the following:
  • Provide newcomers with a sense of belonging
  • Ease the transition for inbound members and their family members
  • Help newcomers make informed decisions
  • Cultivate new friendships
  • Improve morale
For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact the installation’s Relocation Assistance Program office at the Airman & Family Readiness Center.
