18TH FORCE SUPPORT SQUADRON


GREETINGS FROM COMMANDER Allow me to take this opportunity to tell you a little about the 18th Force Support Squadron (FSS) and what we do. The FSS on Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan, is the largest of its kind in the United States Air Force. We have over 2,100 people in 40 facilities whose primary mission is to provide world-class community support to our active duty, and Department of Defense personnel, their families and our retirees with high-quality morale, welfare and recreation (MWR) programs. Our programs are key ingredients for a resilient quality of life. Examples of our community support include annual events such as Tinsel Town, Eggsplosion, Kadena Music Fest or America Fest, Alpha Warrior Competition and Domo Days, just to name a few. We provide over 80 events annually in addition to the regular monthly MWR programs. Providing quality programming does not come without costs. Our funding comes from very limited appropriated funds as well as fees and purchases generated from customers of Force Support activities. Sponsorship helps fund enhancements for our programs. As such, we request your support through commercial sponsorship to enable us to enhance the programs we provide. The Air Force Commercial Sponsorship Program is the only opportunity authorized by the United States Air Force in which you can receive full recognition for your support of Kadena Air Base’s recreational and entertainment programs and events. Additional benefits of sponsorship may include building new customer relationships, strengthening existing customer relationships, conducting product sampling, generating leads and the possibility of integrating sales promotions. Our programs are marketed through digital and print advertising and can reach the 33,000 U.S. and Japanese personnel on Okinawa in addition to the other 38,000 across our sister services. Our digital media channels include the official Kadena Force Support website (KadenaFSS.com), Facebook, Instagram, electronic kiosks in high traffic areas and outdoor marquees located on two main thoroughfares on Kadena Air Base. Our print media channels include “Venture” (official Kadena Force Support magazine), posters, flyers, table tents, and banners. Attendance at events will vary in size depending on the event and venue. Our Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator is ready to assist you in finding the right match to pair our events with your needs, business goals and budget. Whether giving big or small, each contribution makes a significant impact to the resiliency of our members and their families. We look forward to building a lasting partnership, fostering bilateral goodwill, and developing the loyal support of the Kadena Air Base community. Our Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator will gladly answer any questions you may have. Respectfully, Colonel Gilbert B. Eddy Commander, 18th Force Support Squadron Kadena Air Base Okinawa, Japan
