Contact information for key programs and services at this installation.
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 to Fort Knox, in addition to your unit Soldier and Family Readiness Group, supporting resources are available from your rear detachment.
If you are making a permanent change of station 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 Army Community Service’s Waiting Families program. If your family will be residing off-post during the separation, let us know so that we may reach out to them as well. If you need any assistance, call 502-624-6291. Also, visit the Fort Knox Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation website.
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.
