AFN Radio Readers

Don’t overlook radio as an important way to inform your community about the history of our contribution to military families over our 75 year history. Send these radio readers to your local affiliate for the DJs to use during the daily radio programs. These also make great messages for your staff bulletins, parent newsletters, or talking points as you speak to community groups.
