Joining military was not an easy thing, but you can learn so many things from it. And with all those experiences you gained, it's worth the sacrifices. And suddenly you became a Leader, a true one. Leading people in righteous ways. You might also be able to possess a strong heart, tough mind and eventually qualities such as good leadership, hardwork, sense of responsibility and discipline. This let's you prove to yourself that you can do it and everything is possible if you only trust and believe in yourself. You can create a better version of yourself that you once thought you can't be that but you did. Somehow, someday, you will then realize after you've survived and endured all those pain, that you are a successful one and a well-productive individual.
This organization 100% fulfills it's mission of providing high-quality theater programming for active duty service members, veterans, military support staff and their families. I fully believe that their mission is beneficial to the greater military and veteran communities as the arts, especially theater is essential to our societies growth and preservation. As members of the AITAF leadership grow in their celebrity I believe that brings more attention to other work in the arts that Veterans are doing. AITAF is quick to point at the actual Veterans in the space and always helpful in connecting Veterans in the arts space.
Yes! Well done. Exceptional marketing and very veteran oriented.
The group puts on play readings for vets to bridge the gap of military and civilian. They use art as an common experience to do it.
Solid nonprofit in their mission and execution. Skilled staff and organizational development remain positive over the years. The only change I would want to see and what would make this a truly exemplary organization is more gender balance to the board of directors. Certainly recommend anyone attending one of their performances, if they happen to be in your town.
best show around. they dope afafafafafafafafafafafafafafafaf.
Great organization that stays true to its mission, reading relevant pays with top notch performers for military audiences. I appreciate that they don't pander to or over-gratify themselves in front of the audience. AITAF accomplishes what it sets out to do , a simple concept of performing great literature in front of service members to let them make their own personal connections to the work. My only suggestion would be make the talkbacks a little longer. Can't wait to see another performance from them.
AITAF puts on fabulous performances with stellar actors. But often the panel/q&a after the shows are meandering and don't seem to get to any heart of what AITAF's goal is. I appreciate that they're trying to make theater accessible for veterans, no question. But I don't know what to do with it afterward, and the panels ought to help guide that discussion.
Put on a wonderful free show for veterans with very famous actors in a beautifully done play reading. Then held a great meet and greet in which all of the actors were very generous with their time.
The title of this group is somewhat misleading, as they're not particularly focused on arts within the armed forces community. They are primarily aimed at bringing the arts to military personnel, typically theater. Basically, they're shooting to be a hi-brow USO and they do it quite well. The readings are always well done, the actors they get are top notch, and the organization really and truly does care about doing what they do for the benefit and well-being of those who serve. The staff members are all super friendly and caring and they make sure the big name celebrities they work with are the same.
Every time I go to a reading or performance, I'm blown away by the talent. And all of the actors and personalities really want to be there, they are so personable and approachable. Everyone wants to interact with veterans afterwards, talk and be human and have a quick drink, and it feels so much more relaxed. I always really like these events and would love to see more of them. A great way to get out for an evening, and free for veterans to attend. Thanks to the donors who support this organization for our tickets! None
