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.
You may face challenges at some point before, during or after the deployment. Family Services is here to provide information, resources and assistance to help you navigate all the phases of the deployment from pre-deployment through reunion & reintegration. Services are designed to promote positive adjustment to both service members and their families and can be reached at 804-279-4337.
The Guard and Reserve Family Readiness Toolkit can be very helpful in preparing for a deployment. Print out a copy and keep it handy.
Another helpful website in the preparation of a deployment is Plan My Deployment which can be found here: https://planmydeployment.militaryonesource.mil/
A wealth of information is available on the Military OneSource website on preparing for deployment, during deployment, and returning home from deployment. Military OneSource can also be reached by calling: 800-342-9647 Call Us OCONUS Call Us TTY/TDD
