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.
Deployment and mobilization assistance helps soldiers and their families manage separations before, during and after they occur. Army Community Service offers training through Operation Ready materials to train soldiers, family members, commanders, unit leaders, family readiness groups, rear detachment personnel, Reserve Components and volunteers.
Classes and workshops are ongoing throughout the year by Family Readiness Groups, pre-deployment and ongoing readiness, homecoming and reunion. Units and FRGs can request classes by calling ACS.
The family assistance center, with the help and assistance of the outreach program, is also provided to assist family members who are staying behind.
First-Term Spouses programs
First-term spouses are encouraged to attend the ACS offered Army Family Team Building program. There are three levels of Army family team building and also an Army family team-building instructor trainer course.
Family Readiness Group Support Group
Dugway supports FRGs and encourages participation; however, as a unit organization, Dugway does not have a local FRG. Soldier spouses who require FRG assistance must reach back through their parent organization at Fort Carson for assistance.
Family Assistance Information Forms
Family assistance information forms are available to reserve and National Guard soldiers during the Soldier Readiness Program process. Information about family members, spouses, next of kin, special needs, medical problems, identification cards and pay options is collected. Family assistance sheets are mailed to the military installation closest to your family to facilitate assistance while you are deployed. Please call the ACS Mobilization and Deployment Readiness Program for more information.
