The vision for the Airman and Family Readiness Center is to provide information and resources for members and their families through consistent communication and support to promote mission readiness, retention, and assist in developing healthy resilient families.
The Airman and Family Readiness Center serves as a resource for information, programs, training and referrals for all service members — single and married and their families, active duty, Guard, Reserves, retired, civilian and their families.
One of its major functions is linkage — ensuring 182nd Airlift Wing personnel, retirees and their families are connected with the appropriate service, information or program on and off-base.
Call the Airman and Family Readiness Center for assistance anytime you have a question and do not know where to find the answer.
