To support combat readiness through morale and recreation programs by offering a variety of services that improve the productivity and quality-of-life of all Team March community members.
The Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) Program has been recognized as being essential for creating and maintaining the morale of military personnel.
Services programs have long provided essential food, lodging and services for military members. MWR programs were first introduced during the Revolutionary War.
With the establishment of a huge “citizen” army during World War I, the United Services Organization (Inc.) was founded along with programs like library services, troop canteens and sports programs.
In 1920, the Army Motion Picture Service was set up and was soon to be followed by the founding of service clubs later during World War II. Services programs also began during the Revolutionary War, with billeting and food facilities serving as fundamental necessities for military troops. Services’ roots sprang from the supply and civil engineering career fields and then branched off as its own entity in 1992.
In 1992, MWR and Services merged Air Force wide, with the new name, the Air Force Morale, Welfare, Recreation and Services Agency. In 1993, the agency was renamed “Services,” reflecting the mergerís success and focusing directly on what their programs are all about – service. Whatever the name or organization, the Services mission remains the same: to deliver programs and activities to build and sustain ready and resilient Airmen and families.
