Programs come together, and on paper are workable. Then... when real people enter and dedication, love of country, zeal for esprit de corps, Key Spouses zoom... Off the Key Spouses go into the wild blue.
Lt. General Darrell Jones presented with forthrightness USAF's plan and accomplishments on family matters. The Key Spouse program and the Caring for People Forum are forefront in carrying communication up and down the chains of command. Caring is the core of USAF life. General Jones spoke from his heart, his voice resounded the respect he has for his people. He let it be know that the brains of the program was the Air Force loving the Air Force. True.

The brains, the voice and the heart our future Air Force are working hard to contribute to the protection of the USAF family... a giant, huge mega-group of Americans. This is a tribe of folk who can sing with fervor "Off we go into the Wild Blue Yonder". We are folks who stand for the flag, salute and sing the national anthem... now life is oh so good when you can stand next to someone who knows what it like to face similar circumstances. AND a friend who can speak acronyms to boot: PCS, TDY, and USAF.
General Jones is a friend, a man of integrity with whom we served at McChord AFB, WA. His accomplishments match this view and goals for the Air Force we all love. He communicated with ease the pride of the personnel in our USAF. We have leadership, talent, voices and hearts working overtime to protect the integrity of our country. In the meantime, get out and visit the volunteer programs available. There is always a need, always a blessing and always a benefit!
