MEET YOUR DIVISION 1 EXECUTIVE COUNCIL

SMSgt (Ret.) David McCoy

President

dmccoy@hqafsa.org

I served on Active Duty in the Air Force as a medic for 26 years and have been a member of AFSA for more than 25 years, joining first at Yokota AB, Japan in the early 90’s. After a few PCS’s, I arrived at Hickam’s Chapter 1550 in 2003 and subsequently became an AFSA lifetime member. I soon became involved with chapter meetings there and began really getting involved with events and operations, first cutting my teeth on their annual golf tournament. I held several positions at 1550, including Chapter Vice-President, President, and Senior Advisor. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles AFB, California in 2009, I became Chapter President of 1330 and finally attended my first Int’l PAC in Atlanta in 2010. On my last move to Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio in 2011, I joined 751 and was eventually elected Chapter President, serving in that role for five years and then as the Senior Advisor for the last two years. During that time, I also concurrently held positions as Division 1 Trustee and Vice-President before having the honor of being elected as your Division 1 President in 2019. I am extremely proud to continue to serve and support the many uniformed service personnel, retirees, veterans, and all of their family members, as well as our future military leaders who represent our Past, Present, and Future in 17 chapters across 16 states that are, Division 1!
