Posted on May 11, 2015 by Fighter Country

Exec. Director / President - Ron Sites

From the Desk of Fighter Country Partnership,

We are excited to unveil a new initiative within the operations of Fighter Country Foundation…the “FAAR Fund” (Facility Advancement And Relief Fund). As FCP and FCF continue forward with sustaining its important role of providing programs and services that are geared towards Health & Human Services, Culture & Tradition and Mission Sustainability, we will also add to the resume of supporting “facilities” on the base directly.

We recently got word from the Department of the Air Force that our request to “renovate Luke Fire House #1” has been approved, which has been an internal initiative for years in the making. This is an unprecedented….

Another year sustaining our mission

Posted on December 18, 2014 by Fighter Country

Exec. Director / President - Ron Sites

From the Desk of Fighter Country Partnership,

During a recent “year in review” meeting I was asked what I was most proud of this year and I sat there silent. The more dumbfounding thing is that as I sat there in silence, I was literally saying to myself, “why are you not speaking, FCP has done more than ever.” My simple response was that it has been another great year and we have been able to sustain the success we have had over the past four years since I had the opportunity to lead FCP.

I was still frustrated with myself because I couldn’t immediately highlight some of the fantastic functions we were a part of. Luke Days Open House and Air Show, Mission Support Group’s Start Small – Save Big Finance Expo, expanding our Blue Blazer Squadron, building stronger relationships with FCP supporters, welcoming a new Wing Commander and 4 Group Commanders…..

FCP’s Future: A Strong Path Forward

Posted on September 11, 2014 by Fighter Country

Exec. Director / President - Ron Sites

From the Desk of Fighter Country Partnership,

FCP’s main goal is to sustain the programs and services we have initiated over the past years. This goal hasn’t only been stressed by our Board of Directors; it is echoed loudly by the Senior Leadership at Luke AFB. We are proud of the expectations we have created, and within every new endeavor we approach, we will ensure it won’t negatively affect our current programs and services.

The programs and services FCP provides have become very standardized for all the right reasons. The programs are repetitive because we are consistently serving a new demographic due to the continuous turnover of families at Luke AFB. This is perfect from the base’s perspective, but at FCP, we don’t want to become complacent with our current menu of services.

As FCP maintains, we will now focus on growing Fighter Country Foundation (FCF). This has been a goal for many years, and we are now in a position to let FCP continue on its strong path and focus on FCF’s next mission supporting Luke AFB in a much larger way.
