Joint National Project
Suicide Awareness and Prevention
The Department of Defense reported 7,000 service members who took their own lives in one year alone. This is one of the leading causes of death for active duty service members, higher than those lost by all hostile activity combined. Not only is this a tragedy for the military, but for the nation; this is a growing national crisis. Arnold Air Society and Silver Wings are dedicated to raising awareness and providing support to our brothers and sisters in arms, and the millions of Americans who are affected by suicide.
Signature National Project
Mental Health Awareness
Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. Through assistance and advocacy for organizations like the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, Best Buddies, and Active minds, Silver Wings is working tirelessly to bring awareness and support for those with mental illness.
Voluntary Leadership Survey
Lt Col Chris Victoria is a PhD candidate and asked us to survey our cadets as part of his research project on leadership. If you are a cadet in AAS and have some time to spare, please take a moment to complete the survey.
