Our Mission:

To support our community, its families, and each other.

The Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association is a philanthropic organization of enlisted spouses stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. By partnering with the base and community agencies, we ensure that spouses have access to the most up-to-date information concerning enlisted personnel and their families. By joining the Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association, you'll not only make valuable connections, but you will gain a network of support. Our members join together for monthly meetings to relax, socialize, and work towards making Davis-Monthan and our surrounding communities a better place.


Our Programs

The Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association believes that together we can make a difference! Through each of our programs we offer ways for the members of the Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association to give back to the Davis-Monthan community and the community outside of the gates. 


Thrift Store 

The Thrift Shop is co-run by volunteers from the DMESA and the DMOSC. The proceeds from the Thrift Shop go toward scholarships and other charitable funds for the Davis-Monthan community. Visit the thrift shop at 5950 E. Quijota Boulevard. CONSIGN, DONATE, VISIT, OR VOLUNTEER 

educational scholarships 

Every year the DMESA co-partners with the DMOSC and the Ventana Canyon Golf & Racquet Club to award educational scholarships to Military Spouses and Dependents that are High School Graduates. Visit our site in January to download an application to apply to win an educational scholarship.

Build-a-pack drive

The Davis-Monthan First Sergeants and the Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association partner together to collect school supplies to give to the families in need, the children of deployed active duty members, homeschool families, the schools on Davis-Monthan and Military Spouses that are teachers. 

mistletoe bazaar

The Mistletoe Bazaar is new program for the Davis-Monthan Enlisted Spouses Association. We will be accepting vendor applications from Military Spouses, and the Tucson Community soon. Our hopes are that this Bazaar will allow us to partner with other Military Spouses and with the Tucson creative community. 


Our Impact

Since conception, the DMESA has organized and participated in hundreds of welfare drives, both within Tucson and the surrounding Pima County. The DMESA has given over $45,000 in college scholarships for military children and spouses trying to further their education. We are husbands and wives of individuals who have answered the call of duty for their country. We have children we sing to sleep at night and households we run, often times alone. We believe in the importance of friendship and understand that no matter how hard our day might be, there is always someone in more desperate straits than us. It is because of our personal experiences that we strive to make a difference, and appreciate the partnerships we create that allow us to make those differences.

Get Involved

The DMESA is a diverse group of spouses from all of the squadrons here at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. Some of us are career spouses, some are stay at home parents, some of us homeschool, some of us don't have kids, and some of us have what feels like a ton of them. We are are welcome to everyone who is ready to partner with us to meet new connections and to make Davis-Monthan an awesome place.  

We are a membership paying private organization. The membership fee goes towards local charities and our monthly socials so that you do not have to come out of pocket the next 12 months.  

Members shall be spouses of active duty, air national guard, retired, reserves, or deceased enlisted personnel. Spouses whose enlisted husband/wife are absent from DMAFB due to official TDY or remote assignment are also eligible.
