Heart Link Spouse Orientation
Joint Base Andrews' Heart Link "Spouse Orientation" is open to new military spouses married to an Air Force member for 5 years or less, as well as spouses new to Joint Base Andrews; however, all spouses from surrounding installations are welcome to attend. This fun-filled interactive orientation is provided on a virtual platform or in an in-person environment with a variety of activities during the day. Spouses will have the opportunity to meet with the 316th Wing Commander and community partners, and network with other spouses while learning about programs and services available for them and their families. Additionally, included in the Heart Link "Spouse Orientation" is a Spouse Windshield Tour of Joint Base Andrews. Heart Link is offered on a quarterly basis at a minimum, or as requested by installation leadership IAW AFI 36-3009.
The Heart Link program is sponsored by the Air Force Aid Society through their Community Programs that provide funding for many quality-of-life programs.
