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.
Mob/Dep is designed to support active and reserve component soldiers and their families. Guidance and assistance to Family Readiness Groups, rear detachment personnel, and families are provided. All activities promote self-development, self-reliance and resiliency during times of mobilization and deployment and foster teamwork in Family Readiness Groups. Pre-Deployment Briefings, a major function of Deployment/Mobilization Readiness, are conducted prior to unit departure and handbooks are provided to soldiers and their family members. Homecoming and Reunion orientation and training are coordinated with subject matter experts. Coping with Separation training is highly recommended and available for spouses experiencing extended periods of separation (deployment, NTC, TDY, etc.).
Family Readiness Groups (FRGs)
The Family Readiness Group (FRG) is a command sponsored organization of family members, volunteers, soldiers, and civilian employees belonging to a unit, that together provide an avenue of mutual support and assistance and a network of communications among the family members, the chain of command, chain of concern, and community resources. FRGs help create a climate of mutual support within the unit and community. Basic FRG goals include supporting the military mission through provision of support, outreach, and information to family members. FRGs play an integral part in the Family and Soldier Readiness System (FSRS). FRGs are required to be registered with ACS, with lists of points of contact. These lists are to be updated annually, or as changes occur.
FRG Training Topics covered include:
BOSS is a program that supports the overall quality of life of the Single Soldier. BOSS identifies well-being issues and concerns and recommends improvements through the chain of command.
BOSS encourages and assists Single Soldiers in identifying and planning for recreational and leisure activities. Additionally, BOSS gives Single Soldiers the opportunity to participate in and contribute to their respective communities. It is an avenue for military and civilian leaders to gauge and enhance morale, which leads to retention and combat readiness.
Single Parents and Geographical Bachelors also fall under the umbrella of BOSS, as well as single members of other Military Branches that are within the community.
