CONGRATULATIONS THOMAS JENKINS! AAFEP is delighted to announce that Thomas Jenkins’ application for the AAFEP Warrior Family Student Grant has been selected as the winning submission for 2016. We are grateful to Thomas for his prior service to our nation while serving in the Army and his continuing support to his spouse, MSgt (select) Melissa Jenkins; whom is currently serving as the Squadron Aircrew Flight Equipment NCOIC of the 366 Operations Support Squadron, Mountain Home Air Force Base, ID. Thomas is currently pursuing a Civil Engineering degree. We hope that the $1,000 grant will lessen the Jenkins’ family financial burden of higher education costs and will help Thomas to realize his goals. Thanks to all the grant applicants for your participation – we look forward to greater participation next year, as we strive to expand the number of grants awarded.

Regards, Bob Mendez
