The Association

PJ Association Reunion and Rodeo

The PJ Association is founded on the distinctive relationship among men in the Pararescue career field. Our members share the bond and spirit of the Pararescue brotherhood.

The Association provides the initiative and resources to promote special events and activity, and to document the history, heritage and legacy of United States Air Force Pararescuemen.

The Mission

With active engagement and participation from the PJ Association membership, we remember those who came before us.  We demonstrate our respect and recognition for those at the tip of the spear in the global missions of humanitarian aid and the war against terror, and we help to shape the future of Pararescue with our experienced vision.

It is to this mission and fraternity that we have organized the PJ Association for all Pararescuemen.

Mission & Membership

The Pararescue Association is a New Mexico Tax Exempt Corporation organized pursuant to the provisions of IRS Code Section 501c19.

We are mission central for Pararescuemen, and Association Members, PJA sponsored events, and for recognition and memorials commemorating the valorous humanitarian and combat action of Pararescuemen serving around the globe.

Our mission is to honor the past, respect and recognize the present, and to prepare for the future.

We accomplish this with the contributions made by our membership of active duty, retired and former Pararescuemen, and by the families and friends of Pararescuemen who have joined and support the association.
