“How” does FCP support families at Luke AFB?

Posted on April 10, 2012 by rsites

Exec. Director / President - Ron Sites

From the Desk of Fighter Country Partnership,

It is very important that we explain how FCP supports the families at Luke AFB. The military doesn’t support individual families for many reasons. The most important reason is they can’t. Within the military, every individual and family must be treated the same. There are no biases, no favoritism and no special treatment due to circumstance. This is for the right reasons too. A perfect example of why FCP exists is to support the families of the fallen and injured at Luke AFB, because the base can’t.
