The Schlussel Family Scholarship Fund

The Schlussel family established a Scholarship Fund to honor the unsung members in the Air Force Security Forces. The Schlussel family has three generations who served in various positions from the Army Air Corps to the United States Air Force. Every one of these officers felt the enlisted troops they served with were unrecognized in the overall responsibility they held. Security Forces is the single largest enlisted career-field in the Air Force and also have the most interaction with all people (military and civilian) associated with our facilities. Education is an important element for all professionals and the Schlussel family wants to enable these unrecognized Security Force members to improve themselves and thus the Air Force.
