the non-profit 501(c)3 Association for Families of the 115th Fighter
Wing, UW Extension offices, The American Legion and its auxiliaries,
the VFW and many more individuals and businesses; together we
ensure that our members and their families have resources to support success in the Wisconsin Air National Guard.

Readiness Program Overview

EVENTS:  Annual and special events are open to family members throughout the year.  Our goal is to promote a sense of community and unit affiliation so that during times of mobilization and deployment our Air Guard families are ready and familiar with base support systems.  For information on Family Day, child and youth events and camps, the annual Children's Holiday Party and other base events, go to the Truax Ticker.

FAMILY ASSISTANCE:  Guard families are self-sufficient and resilient, but when help is needed, we're here to assist. We have many helping resources. Call us at 608-245-4654.

FINANCIAL COUNSELING SERVICES: We can assist with budget and debt counseling concerns. Members who are requesting financial assistance from base or WING programs may request assistance through our office.

READINESS AND RESILIENCE PROGRAMS:  Guard members and their families are always ready for deployments.  The Airman and Family Readiness program has resources to assist with your family care plan and other concerns about deployment.

RELOCATION ASSISTANCE:   Moving to Madison?  We can help.  If you would like to request a sponsor, send us a message at 115fw.fro@ang.af.mil.

RESOURCE GUIDE: We also provide information and referral services that support the readiness of members and family members. "A Resource Guide for Airman and Families" is annually produced to update members on programs and services available to them.
