The Unite program provides Commanders with funding to initiate programs that will benefit all Airmen in their unit including assigned Active Duty, Reservists, and APF/NAF Civilians. Family members and contractors are welcome to participate in the program but must pay their own expenses.
The UNITE program is here to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for personnel within their unit. This includes assigned Active Duty, Civilians, and Reservists.
Squadron Commanders will appoint squadron Unite POC(s) to the FSS Unite C3. It will list their duties.
Enjoy your event! Take lots of photos as this lets us pass them along to show BIG Air Force what your squadron is doing to Unite!
Please submit your best top 5 photos via email along with your After Action Report.
The C3 will not be attending your Unite events so we are relying on you to provide detailed after action information so that we may improve the program.
AARs must be completed and sent to the C3 within 3 business days after the event.
Email the C3 at firstname.lastname@example.org
In August 2016, Air Force Chief of Staff (CSAF) General David Goldfein, released his letter to Airmen titled, "The Beating Heart of the Air Force...Squadrons!" UNITE is here to provide squadron leaders with the maximum flexibility to deliver programs that build cohesion for all airmen "Big A" within their unit. This includes assigned Air Force Active Duty and APF/NAF Civilians. Family members are welcome to participate, but they must pay any associated fees.
