    Thank you for considering employment with Air Force Services Non-Appropriated Funds (NAF)!
    Misawa Air Base is located approximately 400 miles north of Tokyo, adjacent to Misawa City in Aomori Prefecture in Tohoku, which has a population of approximately 42,000 people. There are about 3,500 U.S. military personnel assigned to Misawa, along with 300 U.S. civilian employees and more than 1,000 local national employees.
    What is NAF Employment?
    NAF employment is considered federal employment. It is, however, different from federal civil service employment because the monies used to pay the salaries of NAF employees come from a different source. Civil service positions are paid for by money appropriated by Congress. NAF money, on the other hand, is self-generated by Air Force clubs, bowling centers, golf courses, and other activities that use NAF employees.
    Misawa NAF Human Resources Office is the servicing personnel office for 35th FSS facilities, such as Yoiko Child Development Center, Lunney Youth Center, Misawa Lodging, Café Mokuteki, Collocated Club, Outdoor Recreation. FSS is here to serve you ~why not help out your community by working at one of our facilities!
