8/7/2012 - WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Taking care of Air Force families has been a passion of Suzie Schwartz, wife of Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz, and Paula Roy, wife of Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy. They have tackled issues that have ranged from spouse employment to issues affecting the families of deployed Airmen and the exceptional family member program, in addition to listening to families directly during visits around the globe.
Through their efforts, a guide book has been developed to give spouses a "toolbox" of information, as well as a way to familiarize them with such things as the Air Force mission, organization, rank structure and traditions.
"Air Force 101" was developed in response to requests for a "spouse battlebook" - a one-stop resource on the basics of life in the Air Force. This guide is designed to provide spouses with "enough information to know what questions to ask...and, who to ask to fully understand the answers."
8/8/2012 10:13:19 AM ET As we bid a fond farewell to Mrs. Suzie Schwartz and her husband Gen. Norton Schwarz I'd like to specifically thank Suzie for all she has done for our spouses. Suzie has been there - online and in person - for so many spouses. The Air Force 101 program may not be perfect but it is light years ahead of what has been done before. She has supported me - and I've never met this darling women in person - more than all of my spouse's leadership combined. Thank you Suzie and God bless you and your family
