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.
The Virtual Family Readiness Group (vFRG) Web Site provides all the functionality of a traditional FRG in an online setting. The vFRG website is the Army’s online tool to provide FRG information to spouses. Soldiers must register spouses or other Family members under the unit website within the vFRG to allow access.
OPERATION R.E.A.L. (Readiness Essentials for Army Leaders) is a training tool designed to provide Family Resource Group leaders, commanders, and rear detachment commanders through all phases of deployment.
Available classes include:
Deployment Buddies Program – Youth to Youth Mentor Program that pairs older students with younger students to mentor and share experiences on how to deal with deployments. Criteria for students to mentor includes; they must have a parent who is deployed, will deploy within 3-6 months or recently returned from deployment. Youth will meet monthly and participate in a wide variety of activities. Operation Military Kids (OMK) program materials designed to assist youth cope with deployment will be used. Freedom Park Elementary School is the pilot location. Interested parents should notify teachers of the Soldier’s absence and request student participation in the program.
