The 301st Fighter Wing resiliency first sergeant, along with the Airman and Family Readiness team, introduced their new Key Volunteers Program initiative through an introductory meeting and an installation tour, May 1.

The Key Volunteers Program is a local initiative to provide resources to help with deployments and to bring helping hands from military spouses, significant others, and their dependents.

“This program seeks to connect our military families to each other and the unit at the same time,” said Scott Palomino, Airman & Family Readiness director. “Communication between military members and their significant others is essential, and we are here to facilitate that communication.”

The Key Volunteers Program introduction brings old and new volunteers together to inform them of the 301 FW mission to train and deploy combat ready Airmen. It also allows key volunteers to meet each other and exchange ideas for increasing morale.

“When I came on last year as a key volunteer, it meant becoming a part of my husband’s squadron," said 301 FW Logistics Readiness Squadron Key Spouse Charly Sue Delorbe, "The new program is excellent because it opens up opportunities for more than just spouses. It's a great thing when we can involve more of the family unit. I want to be a part of what my husband and his coworkers accomplish everyday. I'm very excited about the many upcoming opportunities for myself and the other volunteers who choose to be a part of this.”

Key Volunteers work together with A&FR to enable events such as Holidays & Heroes, Christmas Angel Tree and Santa Taxi.

“I look forward to the new volunteers to help expand our opportunities,” said Palomino.
