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.
Family Readiness Group training is available to all units online. Units typically deploy individual augmentees or small groups. There are currently two FRGs on the installation.
There is a Hearts Apart Waiting Families support group open to all family members with service members deployed or on extended unaccompanied tours. The Hearts Apart group provides camaraderie for the entire family through monthly activities and meetings.
Pre-deployment and redeployment briefs are available upon request.
There are no events specifically for children on a recurring basis. There are many family-oriented events through Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation and other local groups.
