Since 1955, spouses of enlisted personnel at Offutt Air Force Base have been coming together to effectively coordinate social, charitable and educational activities that benefit Offutt Air Force Base, Bellevue and the greater Omaha area. We are the Offutt Enlisted Spouses Club (OESC).
We are “spouses supporting spouses through volunteerism and friendship” for nearly 65 years. Help us continue our legacy of support by becoming a member.
Featured Events and Programs
Since 1972, the Offutt Enlisted Spouses Club has awarded college scholarships to graduating seniors and spouses who are dependents of active duty, retired or deceased military personnel. Scholarships are open to all ranks, enlisted or officer. The 2020 winners, four high school seniors and two military spouses, have been selected and notified.
The 2020-21 OESC elections were conducted during our virtual General Membership Meeting on Thursday, April 2. The Executive Board-Elect is Jamie Schneider (president), Caiti McElroy (vice president), Jennifer Hansen (secretary), Megan Willitzer (treasurer) and Shara Coles (assistant treasurer).
OESC members and their families are invited to attend a free bowling social and lunch later this summer. Originally scheduled for April, this event has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
