As of Aug. 1, 266 Keesler members have used Airmen Against Drunk Driving to get home safely. On behalf of the A2D2 executive council, I want to thank each of you for partying responsibly. Continue to enjoy the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and thanks for keeping my hometown area a little safer.

For those of you that have never used A2D2's service, you can receive a free ride home during our hours of operation. We have a dispatcher and drivers ready to help between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Fridays, Saturdays and the Thursday night before compressed work schedule down Fridays. Our volunteers give their own off-duty time and use their personally-owned vehicles. They are willing to drive as far west as U.S. Highway 49 in Gulfport, as far east as U.S. Highway 57 near Vancleave, and just north of Interstate 10. It's that important to us to keep you and others safe.

Your use of our service remains confidential as long as you show a Department of Defense identification card to our drivers to receive access to base and if you are not violating any laws or regulations. So, the next time the taxi is lagging, you are short on funds, or your plans fall through, give us a call--you can't beat a free ride.

Let us drive, so you can live to party on.

Write down the following number so you have it ready when you need it 228-377-7283 (377-SAVE). If you have ever received a lift from A2D2 or would like to volunteer as either a driver or dispatcher, email Keesler.aaddofficers@us.af.mil
