ALBANY, GA (WALB) – American heroes then and now are in Albany for a convention.

The Air Force Sergeants Association is holding its Southeastern Division 4 convention in Albany for the next two days.

The group is dedicated to speaking out on behalf of the people behind the stripes.

About forty active duty, retired, and Air Force reserve service members from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee will attend.

"We conduct business that has to be voted on by the delegates in attendance at the convention by law changes, constitutional changes, and election of officers," CMSgt. James Thomas, Ret., AFSA Division 4 President.

AFSA held an silent auction on Friday to raise money to offset the cost of the convention.
