DUKE FIELD, Fla. --
The 919th Special Operations Wing is looking for a few good… volunteers or connected family members curious about base opportunities.
The wing’s Key Family Connection program is in the process of standing up with plans to have points of contact throughout the wing.
The program which falls under the wing’s Airman and Family Readiness unit is a team of volunteers that help inform, support and care for the 919th SOW families. The program creators want it to be a powerful and informative communication tool for the wing’s Airmen and their families.
The plan to create this communication web is to have voluntary points of contact in each squadron and unit to act as a liaison of information. The point of contact can be an Airman, civilian or family member who would like to keep the unit and wing informed.
“We are building a team of volunteers to help really connect, communicate and care for our Airmen and their families,” said Lynne Bailey, the Key Family coordinator. “Volunteers play a vital role in future unit and family functions helping to build a strong wing community.”
Recently, the network coordinated to provide meals to a 919th SOW family in their time of need.
As the communication web grows, so does the program’s social media presence. A program Facebook group page is up and running with more to follow.
Wing leadership is also looking for anyone connected to the wing who would just like to know ‘what’s happening at Duke Field.’ 919th SOW-connected people can submit their email address to receive Key Family Connection emails and information specifically pertaining to the individual’s particular unit (if available.)
