Come join the Edwards Key Spouses team!

The Key Spouse Program is a formal unit program that offers informal peer-to-peer/wingman support to families. The Key Spouse Program is a commander’s program. The commander establishes and maintains the program within the unit. The team is comprised of the commander, the Key Spouse Mentor, the first sergeant, the Key Spouse, and the Airman and Family Readiness center. Everyone on the team impacts the unit’s culture and contributes to its ability to accomplish the mission at home and abroad.
