Key Spouse Program

The Air Force Key Souse Program is a formal commander’s unit readiness program to enhance unit family readiness and offers informal peer-to-peer/wingman family support. Air Force leadership highly encourages involvement on all levels to strengthen family resilience and build a sense of community--particularly during deployments and permanent change of station.  The Key Spouse Team is traditionally comprised of the Commander (CC), First Sergeant (CCF), Key Spouse Mentor (KSM), Key Spouse (KS) and the Airman and Family Readiness Center (A&FRC).  Commanders may also elect to utilize a Chief, Superintendent and/or a SNCO as members of the KS Team.  The strategic vision is to increase resiliency and unit cohesion among military families throughout the military lifecycle


The mission of the Key Spouse Program is to provide information and resources to military spouses, supporting families in successfully navigating throughout the military cycle.


The Air Force Family--empowered and resilient.
