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.

How you can support our military families

Posted on March 24, 2014 by Fighter Country

Ron Sites, Executive Director FCP

This is usually the opportunity I take to educate our partners, supporters and community about the great programs, services and unique experiences we have brought to the airmen and their families at Luke AFB.  But this time, I will not explain the Financial Saves Expo, Fiesta Bowl Parade, 56th Fighter Wing Annual Awards Dinner, Luke AFB Spouses Dining-In Event or the 2nd Annual Dorm Dweller Holiday Party and their respective successful outcomes.

What I will do is explain once again “how we make these amazing things happen”.  It is because of the great financial support we receive from the Arizona community “and” our golf tournament, that we can afford to bring programs and services to Luke families that enhance their quality of life.
