What is the Unite Program and its History:

Squadron revitalization has become one of the top priorities across the Air Force. Many changes have been made to increase camaraderie among units - the Unite Program is one of those changes. In August 2016, Air Force Chief of Staff (CSAF) General David Goldfein, released a letter to Airmen across the Air Force with his first priority being revitalization within squadrons. The Air Force Services Center brought the Unite Program into existence August 2018.

"It is time to revitalize the squadron as the warfighting core of our Air Force. Our vision demands that squadrons be highly capable, expeditionary teams who can successfully defend our Nation's Interests in both today's and tomorrow's complex operating environments. We will succeed only when our squadrons are the cohesive, ready, and agile fighting forces that the Air Force, Combatant Commanders, and the Nation requires."

DAVID GOLDFEIN General, USAF Chief of Staff

Unite is one component of CSAF Focus Area #1, "Revitalizing Squadrons." Unit commanders are in the best position to execute resources that benefit Airmen under their authority. This initiative provides unit commanders with the funding to initiate programs that benefit their unit. This program will benefit all Airmen in a unit; Active, Reserve and Civilian (appropriated and non-appropriated employees) directly assigned. Each member, military and civilian, is annually allotted $13.50 for programs/activities and $5 for food/beverage.
