Contact information for key programs and services at this installation.
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.
Readiness and deployment support programs provide knowledge and skills to military personnel and their families in an effort to enhance military life. It is recommended that units schedule these workshops as soon as deployment schedules are known. All of the following briefs and workshops must be scheduled in advance by the unit deployment/uniformed readiness coordinator. Call 910-451-0176 to schedule.
Pre-deployment briefs are designed to provide resources and information that assist service members and their families in preparing for and coping with the changes and challenges of deployment. There are two versions of this brief—one for single service members and one for married service members—as their needs are very different. These briefs are designed to be just that—brief. We hit the wave tops of important information and provide the participants with an informational package to carry with them that details all the topics covered in the brief.
Kids and Deployment Workshops
Kids-N-Deployment is actually two workshops in one—a workshop for parents and a workshop for children (parents on one side and children on the other)—and is designed to offer the parents as well as the children the resources and coping skills needed to sustain them during the deployment. The parents’ side of the workshop focuses on the children’s emotional and behavioral challenges, as well as coping strategies and resources to utilize during the deployment. The children’s side of the workshop provides the children activities and tools needed to cope with military separations.
Mid-Deployment Self Care and Success Workshops
