Active USAF Medical Service Corps (MSC)


OverviewThe USAF MSC Association (MSCA) is a professional, non-profit association for USAF Medical Service Corps (MSC) Officers since 1992. The MSCA dedicated to serving members with a variety of services to sustain, honor, and preserve our culture, legacy, and history. The MSCA is point for all members and Corps Chief’s office on MSC for info sharing, advice, networking, history, career management advice, and leader development.


InspirationSeveral hundred retired Air Force MSC officers met at an ad hoc reunion organized by a group of dedicated San Antonio retirees in 1991. Some of them were “charter” MSCs, having transferred from the Army when our corps was established in 1949. Others were relative newcomers, younger and with different priorities. However, it quickly became clear the consensus supported creating a formal organization to promote the interests of MSC retirees.


While initially established as an organization of retired Air Force MSC officers, bylaws amendments have opened the association to active duty and Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard MSCs. Because of the increased number of members from the USAFR and ANG, makeupof the Board of Directors includes an officer from these groups.

The bylaws were again amended to expand eligibility to all former Air Force MSCs. Surviving spouses of Corps members are also eligible for full membership. The Honorary Membership category is available to recognize worthy individuals who have contributed to the growth and momentum of the Air Force Medical Service Corps


Membership has grown to over 1,000. In 1992, the USAF MSC Association was incorporated in the State of Georgia and approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit veterans’ organization. We serve as a focal point for communications with and among members for educational, leader development, career management, MSC history and interaction with the USAF MSC Corps Chief’s Office, advocacy and advice, social and recreational purposes.


Services: Members stay connected and informed with annual membership rosters, periodic newsletters with comprehensive content of interest to all members, opportunities to share their stories as part of the ongoing history project, life event and survivor support, and an interactive Facebook Group (must answer 3 questions):

In 2020, we started professional development webinars via Zoom to help create future leaders and ensure members are current on their competencies and share experiences on career, family, and self-development. The MSCA also offers career management, mentoring, andnetworking services.

We convene biennial membership meetings (reunions and education sessions) which have become excellent learning opportunities and an opportunity to renew acquaintances and enjoy old friends. Biennial Reunions and Education sessions have been held all over the USA including Las Vegas, Charleston, SC, San Antonio, Biloxi, Mississippi, St Louis, Washington DC, and Seattle. The Association also sponsors events such as the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) USAF MSC Dinner and Corps Chief events. Added to that are benefits derived from the reunions that are more and more becoming educational seminars featuring presentations by knowledgeable professions including the Surgeon General’s Office, the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), and Defense Health Agency (DHA), Veteran’s Affairs, and other commercial and non-profit organizations.
