Welcome Message

Welcome to the Air Force Association Lance P. Sijan Chapter website! 
We are one of the largest and most active AFA chapters in the nation, with more than 2300 members.  We call ourselves the “Force behind the Force” because we exist for one primary purpose: to support the Colorado Springs Air Force family.  Membership is a mix of active duty, veterans, and retirees, all with a common desire to support the Air Force and its members.  Take a look at  our events below and the “about us” tab to see what we do.

You are welcome to attend any of our board meetings. We meet at 7:30 am on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Lockheed Martin office, 985 Space Center Dr., Ste. 225 Colorado Springs, CO. 80915.

In the name and memory of a great Air Force pioneer, the Lance P. Sijan Chapter of the Air Force Association sponsored the General Bernard A. Schriever Memorial Essay Contest. The purpose of the contest was to stimulate thought, discussion, and debate on matters relating to how the Air Force and Air Force Space Command  provide space and cyberspace capabilities for the Joint Force and the Nation.  The contest was open to all current AF military and civilian personnel, including AF Reserve and Air National Guard members.  The Chapter is proud to announce the three winning essays selected from a tough competition of 20 excellent submissions.  The three top essays are: “What Happens if They Say ‘No’?  Preserving Access to Critical Commercial Space Capabilities During Future Crises,” by Maj Joseph Iungerman, HQ AFSPC/A8; “Space Sustainment:  A New Approach for America in Space,” by Maj Kris Barcomb, 24AF/A5X; and “Mission Resilience and the Contested, Degraded and Operationally-limited Space:  The Gaps in Tactical Space Operations,” by Capt Bryan Bell and 2Lt Even Rogers.   The Air and Space Power Journal will publish the top three essays, and the chapter will award over $2000 in prizes for the top essays.  Topics from the other submissions ranged from space and cyber ops to sustainment, testing, training, mission resilience, mission assurance and more.  Gen (Retired) Lance Lord led the judging committee, comprised of six senior leaders from HQ AF Space Command, Air University, industry and AFA.
