AFSC Offers Veteran Benefits Services to Employees
Anthony M., a physical disability evaluation system analyst based in San Antonio for AFSC/Magellan Federal, was called to active duty by the Texas National Guard in April to assist the state’s first responders and emergency aid officials in response to severe weather that hit Texas. As part of the Defense Support of Civil Authorities, this team handled the call with urgency, care and a high standard of professionalism.
Anthony’s unit was assigned to Texas Task Unit 1 to provide assistance to flood rescue operations. The Task Unit and Anthony’s team provided safe transport for a six-person fire and rescue team, using a Zodiac boat to escort the group through neighborhoods that were submerged in six feet of water. This enabled the team to safely rescue citizens who were trapped by the dangerous flood waters.
From April 18-22, Anthony, his team and the local fire and rescue team successfully and safely rescued 13 citizens trapped by the flood waters. The Texas flood waters killed 16 people, including nine soldiers stationed at Fort Hood.
Anthony was recognized with the Texas Humanitarian Award for his actions during this extremely dangerous situation. A huge congratulations to Anthony for being honored with this award. We thank you for serving in uniform both at work and on personal time. Most importantly, thank you for your outstanding service to the Texas community.

On 22 October 2016, the AFSC San Antonio Team, joined by family members, participated in an 4th Annual 5K run/walk to bring awareness to the fight against Domestic Violence to support the Kristine Meza Foundation. This event, without precedence, brought the community together around awareness and a firm theme of ‘Supporting the Victims, Admiring the Survivors, Honoring the Taken, and Never Ever Giving up Hope”.
The mission of the Kristine Meza Foundation is to raise awareness in our community on the impact of domestic violence. The foundation is committed to strengthen individuals by education, compassion and courage. Also included in the mission is to serve as a resource to those associated with its physical, emotional and mental harm and by doing so, preventing the loss of wholesome lives.
Included with the 18 AFSC Team Members, also known as “AFSC Sole Train”, the run was supported by over 1,000 runners and walkers. It was a wonderful event, supporting a cause that is close to the hearts of the AFSC Family!
History of Kristine Meza Foundation (KMF): KMF was organized in response to a tragic event that occurred on February 11, 2011. Kristine Meza fell victim to domestic violence. She was ambushed in her driveway on her way to work by her estranged ex-boyfriend. As a result, a group of individuals united to embark on a mission in hopes of making a difference for those who feel locked in silence. KMF was born September 2011. Our goal is to host an annual 5K Run/Walk in order to raise more awareness on the issue and impact of domestic violence. Along with hosting an annual 5K to generate awareness, KMF’s goal is also to recruit as many support members and offer resources for help.
