6/7/2011 - SAN ANTONIO, Texas  --  Almost everyone likes to receive gifts and the Force Support Squadron is making the joy of giving a little easier with new gift cards.

The FSS introduced gift cards as a convenient way to purchase gifts for family and friends for special occasions, from birthday presents to holidays. They are simple to purchase and easy to use, giving special purchasing power in nearly all FSS activities.

"The overwhelming benefit of the new gift card is the convenience," said Mr. Frank Black, chief of community programs, Air Force Services Agency. "First it takes the worry out of what to give someone for a special occasion. Then the card can be used for everything and anything Force Support Squadron's offer, from lunch at the bowling center to white water rafting down the Colorado."

Gift cards are sold at many FSS point of sale outlets. The patron decides how much goes on the card, pays only that amount and is issued the gift card. Any amount can be loaded starting at $5. Gift cards are also reloadable and balances can be checked anytime on-line at

"Patrons might also be glad to know that the gift card they purchase through Force Support never expires and doesn't decrease in value over time," said Fred McKenney, chief of the Air Force Food and Beverage Division. "That means people can take as much time as they want to use the card."

Force Support Squadrons are responsible for providing morale, welfare and recreational type activities along with troop feeding and lodging capabilities in deployed areas and at home stations. In addition to lodging, dining facilities, fitness centers and Child Development Centers, the FSS operates non-appropriated fund facilities including, bowling centers, golf courses, community centers, and arts and crafts activities. FSS Gift Cards are accepted in most activities.
