“What does my husband do in the Air Force?”
“How can I meet other family members?”
Every month, more than 1,500 Air Force Reservists from more than 20 states make their way to Grissom Air Reserve Base. Many family members who stay behind feel they are left in the dark.
In an effort to improve morale and welfare of Team Grissom, Senior Master Sgt. Eric Vance, 434th Air Refueling Wing Yellow Ribbon representative, is working to integrate family members at Grissom through a series of family meet and greet events to serve as a reminder that the Air Force family extends beyond those who wear the uniform.
“We’re trying to get more family involvement to get the families of our military members more comfortable with Grissom,” Vance said.
