Key Spouse Program

Remember what it felt like to be a new spouse to a base or to the Air Force. Here’s your chance to assist others, so they don’t travel the same bumpy road you had to. This squadron commander program trains volunteer spouses on all support services available to assist other spouses in their squadron during deployments, remotes, TDYs and overall adaptation to the military lifestyle. Contact your squadrons First Sergeant to volunteer or call the Airman & Family Readiness Center, 434-2790 for more information.
