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.
Deployed Support Group
Fort Belvoir ACS has information and resources for families facing a deployment. The ACS Relocation Readiness Program Manager facilitates a deployed support group that meets monthly. The purpose of the group is to provide information, support, and assistance to family members who are separated from their sponsor due to mission requirements. (deployment, geographically separated, unaccompanied tour, or extended TDY). The group meets every third Thursday of the month at ACS from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Free child care and dinner are provided. For more information, contact the Relocation Readiness Program Manager at 703-805-3436/5058.
Pre-Deployment briefs to prepare Soldiers and Families who face deployment are scheduled the 2nd Monday of each month in ACS from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. or by individual appointments. Unit Deployment classes can also be arranged. Reunion and Reintegration Workshops are scheduled on the 3rd Monday, 9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to prepare Family for Reunion and then becoming a Family again.
