WOW

This podcast has re-introduced me to a feeling I only had when I was in the air force. Airmen Helping Airmen is truly the Air Force way.

R. Hackett ,

Really liked episode 2!

Episode 2 really explained military aid societies well, which, as a civilian, I appreciated.

HarrisTheHustler ,

Great podcast!!!!

As a veteran of the USAF, this podcast is just what this generation of Airmen need to hear. The host is charismatic and intelligent and provides the guests a platform to explain their individual organization, explain in laments terms what their goals are and give an informed breakdown on how to go about utilizing their services. After listening to the first episode I was totally hooked and I encourage those who have listen to the podcast to subscribe as well.
