This guide provides information about the Air Force KEY SPOUSE Program. The KEY SPOUSE Program is a formal unit program that offers informal peer-to-peer/Wingman family support. There are a number of imperatives for a revised emphasis on this program: Impact of the war’s OPSTEMPO, force reduction, and the Community Action Information Board feedback show signs of spouse stress with increases in domestic situations and suicidal gestures and attempts. Unit participation in this program is voluntary; however, AF leadership highly encourages involvement on all levels to strengthen family resiliency–particularly during deployments.
