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.
If you should be deployed while assigned at Fort Knox, aside from your unit Family Readiness Group (FRG), there is the ACS Waiting Families Program. This program is designed to provide your family member with great information, a support network consisting of other waiting families, and to ensure they feel just as important as when you were here. ACS offers plenty of creative ways and training to keep your family occupied should you leave.
If you are PCSing on hardship or unaccompanied tour out of Fort Knox and have approval to leave your family member in government housing here, we highly encourage you to contact the ACS Waiting Families program. If your family will be residing off-post during the separation, contact and let us know so that we may able to reach out to them as well. If you need assistance, call 502-624-6291. https://knox.armymwr.com/
ACS provides support to commanders of Active and Reserve Component forces and emergency-essential civilians during pre-deployment, mobilization, deployment, homecoming, and stability and support operations (including mass casualties, evacuation, and natural disasters).
The Mobilization Deployment Readiness Program Support Specialist is located at Army Community Service, Building 1477, 411 Eisenhower Avenue, and can be reached by calling 502-624-6291/8391 or DSN 312-464-6291/8391.
