Airman and Family Readiness Program

Readiness is one of the key concepts underlying the Air National Guard. Our members must be prepared--physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually--to be called to duty on short notice. The National Guard long ago realized that readiness was not a purely military matter. A deployed airman is going to be more focused and effective if he or she is not worrying about family and other matters back home.

The 177th Wing's Airman and Family Programs Office support the military readiness of the wing by providing programs that enhance the welfare and morale of service members and their families. It:

establishes a level of awareness among leaders, service members and family
members that encourages retention and improves readiness

emphasizes the importance of the family and supports family member
participation in unit activities


ensures that ID cards and family readiness literature are issued to family
members


educates service members and families about the existence and nature of
their benefits and entitlements, both in their current status and upon
mobilization, or extended TDY; and


links service members and families with available and appropriate resources
