Air Force Village is an extraordinary place with a remarkable vision. Founded by the Air Force Officers’ Wives’ Clubs in 1964, its compassionate mission is to provide a dignified, comfortable, affordable retirement community for the widowed spouses of retired Air Force officers. Today, The Village continues to care for widowed spouses who need financial assistance and provide for their health care needs in one of America’s premier CCRCs. Since 2007, The Village has been building an endowment to assist widowed spouses who, through no fault of their own, and often as a result of tragic circumstances, have exhausted their financial resources. These men and women selflessly served their country alongside their spouses and we are here to respectfully let them know they have not been forgotten.
