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.
Defense Logistics Agency military, Department of Defense civilian employees and their family members who are being deployed, have access to Deployment Assistance Services, which are provided by the Defense Supply Center Columbus’ Family Services Program manager from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Military OneSource and the Employee Assistance Program’s online services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Military OneSource is available to active duty, reserve, National Guard and their family members regardless of their active status in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. Deployed DoD civilians and their family members may use Military OneSource while deployed and for up to six months after their return.
Military OneSource is a free support service provided by the DoD that offers assistance and resources to service members and their family members on many different issues.
