Spouse Link

Military spouses join the military without taking the oath, but they are important members of the AF team.  New military spouses may soon discover that their AD spouse will soon deploy or they are about to PCS, but they may not be sure what a deployment or PCS means let alone what it involves.  Heart Link orients new spouses (married less than 5 years) about military life as a member and family member.  Child care is available for his workshop.
