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.
Davis-Monthan Air Force Base’s Military and Family Readiness Center (M&FRC) has a great program for all deployed personnel, their spouses and their family members. Several programs are available to assist in keeping deployed members focused on the mission and maintaining life for their families while they are away.
Deployed Family Events (Hearts Apart)
Monthly scheduled activities like bowling, skating and miniature golf for family members whose sponsors are deployed or on a remote/unaccompanied assignment. Hearts Apart is open to all military families of deployed or remote members. Please email 355FSS.FSH.AFRC@us.af.mil for upcoming events.
Morale calls are ones that spouses and family members can make from home. Six calls at 20 minutes each per month are allowed for families of members deployed or on remote assignment.
Computers and support
Computers and a fax machine are available at the M&FRC for deployed family members to use.
Free Deployed Family dining
This program allows families of deployed or remote Airmen to enjoy a free meal (typically dinner time) once per month. Please email 355FSS.FSH.AFRC@us.af.mil for the dinning schedule.
Hearts Apart newsletter
Keep current with what is happening around the base. The newsletter is published monthly. Please email 355FSS.FSH.AFRC@us.af.mil to get on the deployed families email distro list.
Give Parents a Break

Deployment care program
