A Key Spouse volunteer may be the spouse of an officer, an enlisted Airman or Guardian, a Department of Defense civilian or other qualified person connected to the unit. Unit leaders formally select and appoint each Key Spouse. Senior officer or enlisted spouses are encouraged to serve as mentors or advisers. Staff members from the installation Military & Family Readiness Center provide initial and update training, and serve as a referral resource for Key Spouses.
The program’s structure is designed so the unit commander, Key Spouse, first sergeant, and Key Spouse mentor work as a team to ensure 100 percent follow-up with separated families. Currently at Peterson SFB, we have over 100 members in the Key Spouse networking group.
For more information about Key Spouses, call the Military & Family Readiness Center at 719-556-6141.
