By The United States European Command Headquarters

In a visit to the European Theater, the Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas (CFC-O) Executive Director, Ms. Victoria Adams, visited with the senior leadership of both U.S. Africa Command and U.S. European Command on June 25 in Stuttgart to present checks from the 2014 CFC campaign for Family Support & Youth Programs (FSYP). The CFC-O distributes undesignated pledges from the campaign back to the military installations where the pledges originated. Regulations allow these FSYP funds to be used for quality of life programs such as recreational activities support, improved facilities, emergency assistance and other support services for families & children as well as single and deployed service members.
