AFHA receives logistical support from the Office of the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of the Army and financial support from all service branches and local military spouses clubs. AFHA, originally known as the Army Hostess Association, was founded in March 1949 when General Omar Bradley asked General Hobart Gay, the Commanding General of the Military District of Washington, DC to assist three officers’ wives to establish a Pentagon office to assist incoming personnel to the nation’s capital. It became the Armed Forces Hostess Association three months later when other service wives joined the effort. THE AFHA CREED: "If we don't know the answer, we will make every effort to find it."
