The Secretary of the Air Force’s priority to “Take Care of Airmen” drives the Military and Family Division’s (MFPC/DPFF) mission to provide unequaled operational oversight to 76 active duty Military and Family Readiness Centers, offering programs and services in 15 core areas to nearly 1.7 million Airmen and families. The division also provides guidance to Retiree Affairs Offices, supporting nearly 700,000 retirees worldwide, conducts background research on Foreign Government Employment applicants and responds to Board of Corrections for Military Records requests regarding Survivor Benefit Entitlements.

Deployment Support - The Department of the Air Force is dedicated to ensuring the needs of Airmen, Guardians, and their families are identified and addressed through all phases of a deployment. To assist Commanders in this effort, Military & Family Readiness Centers (M&FRCs) are responsible for providing pre-deployment readiness briefings, deployment education and support to Airmen and their families at all phases of the deployment cycle.

Volunteer Resources

The M&FRC’s helps to manage volunteers for the 139th Airlift Wing. We currently have two types of volunteers: Statutory Volunteers are known as the Key Spouse or Key Volunteers at the 139th AW. These volunteers do not have to be a spouse but they help promote a partnership with unit leadership and families. To be a Key Volunteer you just have to have the desire to help the units, be available most drill weekends and attend yearly training. The second type of volunteer is a Gratuitous Volunteer. These volunteers may help with one activity or several. They do not require training and are just able to give of time they have available, because we appreciate and accept any help that can be given at the 139th Airlift Wing. Please see links to the Key Spouse Program or Brochure about volunteering below.


The Newcomer’s Orientation program is designed to provide general awareness of the unit to newly assigned airmen. Newcomers brief is held quarterly during Saturday of RSD. (January, April, August, October) Please contact Military & Family Readiness to attend this briefing. All Service Members and Family welcome.
