Air Force Key Spouses and Key Spouse Mentors serve as part of the Air Force Key Spouse Program and are selected and appointed in writing by unit commanders to act as official unit representatives. Key Spouses serve as part of the commander’s support team that usually consists of the commander, first sergeant, unit superintendent or a senior noncommissioned officer. Key Spouse Mentors support Key Spouses by sharing their expertise, providing encouragement and advocating for the program. As dedicated volunteers, Key Spouses assist with everything from maintaining family contact rosters to organizing unit care packages for deployed squadron members.
