Key Spouses are trained volunteers that provide
personal, peer-to-peer support for their squadron's families. Their role is to
care for families by providing them with information from their squadron's
leadership about events, programs, and other available resources during periods
of separation. As an official unit representative, they also serve as a point
of contact when spouses need to communicate any difficulties they may be
experiencing to their leadership. As fellow military spouses who also live with
and adapt to military lifestyle cycles and changes, they are passionate about
what they do! They are a critical team member of each squadron's leadership,
and they are informed, equipped, and empowered to make a difference on base and
in the lives of their squadron's families.
If you are interested in having an active role in your
squadron as a Key Spouse, please schedule a meeting with your squadron
commander in order to obtain an official appointment. Key Spouses are official
commander appointed volunteers who represent the unit and must be approved
prior to attending Key Spouse Initial Training. Volunteers of any gender, age,
or rank are encouraged to become Key Spouses.
If you are unsure how to get in contact with your squadron commander, get in contact with the current Key Spouses in the unit or if you would like to inquire further about this program please contact Airman and Family Readiness Center at FSC.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 325-654-3893.
