lrafb 2023 air force assistance fund campaign
The annual Air Force Assistance Fund (AFAF) campaign has begun, giving us another opportunity to help our fellow Airmen when they need it most. The AFAF campaign supports four charities that are dedicated to caring for Airmen from induction through retirement and beyond. They are an example of Air Force people taking care of their own—in a “For Airmen, By Airmen”, one of a kind campaign. Key Workers will soon be visiting your work centers to explain further. Use the QR code or visit to make a donation toward your unit’s and the base’s goal today!

From 4 to 21 April 2023, the Air Force Civil Engineer Center will conduct third party inspections of Little Rock AFB's privatized housing portfolio of 991 units. The FY20 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) included a requirement for the Department of the Air Force (DAF) to contract with qualified home inspectors to inspect the DAF privatized housing portfolio. The overall intent is to reinforce the DAF’s commitment to provide safe and affordable housing to Servicemembers and their families. . Inspections are scheduled from 0800 to 1600 (inspectors may knock on doors up to 1700 only) and will take about 75 minutes per unit. The resident only needs to be with the inspectors while they are in the home (about 15-20 minutes). Health and life safety concerns will be reported to the Military Housing Office (MHO) immediately. For your reference/use, attached is a flier that summarizes the info. Residents schedule an inspection appointment using the QR code below or follow the link (

Health Promotions will be hosting the Best SELF weight management program again beginning Tuesday, 4 April, at Walter's Community Center. The program will last until 9 May.

1. Feedback/Question/Comments:

  • I suggest trying to find a way for a family bathroom to be included at the gym. For us parents that are single or alone with kids at the gym and one of our kids that is the opposite gender has to use the bathroom, there is no option but to take them in the parent gender bathroom where it says do not bring kids of the opposite gender in here and be mindful of the other people in there. While I agree, what is the work around? Why have a kids room if they aren't having the resources or support for the kids? And the workers giving you disrespectful notions due to you having to make do with what is available.  Am I supposed to drive all the way home because I don't have any options? Just a thought, I think not having a bathroom for families is hard. This is the first base I have been to that doesn't have that option (that has a kids room). And to fit the force and make the family a priority I feel like it neglects that. Just think how if you were a female or male and as a female you have to bring your son into the bathroom with you or if you’re a male and your daughter has to use the bathroom and all you can use is the bathroom available to you. I think one, it makes the parent highly uncomfortable as well as the child. Maybe it isn't a huge issue on your list, and that's fine. But at least put yourself in the parents shoes and say yea she/he has a point. This is something we could look into. Thank you.


  • Thank you for your patronage and suggestion. We started looking into the requirements for adding a family restroom. In the meantime, the Fitness Center allows children ages 5 and under in the opposite gender locker room per DAFI 34-114. Our staff posted signs to make customers aware. For a smaller, more private restroom option, we also have one male and one female restroom (with 2 stalls each) in the main hallway of the facility. Thanks, again, for your suggestion. Please don't hesitate to speak with a Fitness Center staff member or submit a comment via ICE (*DoD&sc=11) for future questions and/or concerns.

2. Feedback/Question/Comments:

  • What is the purpose of our Black Knight being Rodney the Captain? Aren’t we all Black Knights? This is coming from an officer who wants folks to know we all represent this team.


  • Thank you for your keen observation of the captains’ bars that had recently been affixed to Rodney, our beloved Black Knight statue in the Wing building. We are not sure who, or when those plastic, 3D printed bars were taped upon his shoulders, but we have since removed them. I am not sure Rodney wearing the rank of Captain, nor Staff Sergeant, nor any other rank should be a cause of concern regarding inclusion and who Rodney represents. Rodney, as a Black Knight, represents all those that serve our great nation from any branch of our Armed Force, whether enlisted, officer, or civilian, and even our family members and local community that supports what we do every day.

3. Feedback/Question/Comments:

  • I wish there was more of a sense of community on the base. Can we bring back family movie nights? Or bring an ice cream truck into housing on Friday evenings? Anything to get people out of their houses.
