The Air Force Association is established to foster the spirit of friendship formed on service and to perpetuate the honour and ideals of the Royal Australian Air Force and other designated services.
In late 2010 the National Presidents of the Defence Force Welfare Association, the Naval Association of Australia, the Royal Australian Regiment Corporation, the Australian Special Air Services Association and the RAAF Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding establishing the Alliance of Defence Service Organisations. Read the Supplementary Submission to the Senate Committee by the Alliance.
People may have received an email purporting to have been authored by the President of the Queensland Division of the RAAF Association and which contains offensive language and sentiments relating to the observance of Anzac Day. Mr Carlile is the President of the Queensland Division and denies having either authored the email or prior knowledge that it was being composed.

The National Council of the RAAF Association asks that if you receive such an email that you delete it or if you have received it from one of your regular correspondents advise the person of the contents of this statement.
