Deployment can be a challenging phase of the military lifecycle, but it’s important to know that you don’t have to go through it alone. The military provides a variety of resources and support programs — ranging from educational briefings to morale calls — for your loved ones, children and service members to ease the stress of deployment. Military members may be assigned to a specific installation but support may come from local communities, Yellow Ribbon events or the installation itself.
Hearts Apart events include deployed spouse and family meals, movie nights recreational activities and more.
There is a difference between being ready "to go" and being ready "to part."
Being ready to go means having your duffel bag packed, all shots up to date and other duty essential preparations completed. Being ready to part from your spouse or significant other and other family members means being aware of the personal and family issues related to separation, and being prepared to deal as constructively as possible with those issues.
The Military & Family Readiness Center’s Readiness Program assists deploying/returning troops and their families by providing support programs that help develop self-sufficiency and resiliency during the entire deployment cycle – pre-deployment, sustainment and reintegration. These services will help reduce the stress of dealing with the separation and reintegration process, increase individual and family morale, and support operational readiness.
Pre-deployment briefings are mandatory for anyone going on a deployment or temporary duty assignment for 30 days or more. They are held weekly or by one-on-one appointment. The M&FRC also offers reintegration/reunion briefings twice a week for those returning from deployments. Spouse attendance is highly encouraged.
