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 Deployment Readiness program at Army Community Service assists Soldiers and Families in many ways. Unit Commanders mobilizing through the installation are made aware of ACS services at the installation mobilization pre-site visit. Soldiers are given an ACS overview of programs when mobilizing through the Soldier Readiness Center. Soldiers deploying and redeploying through the installation are offered the services of a Military Family Life Consultant. Soldier and Family Readiness Group Leader and Rear Detachment Commander training are offered on a regular and ongoing basis at the installation.Units can request special briefings by completing an individual training request. The Deployment Readiness Program Manager at ACS can be reached at 608-388-6712.
The Deployment Readiness Program Manager at Fort McCoy also serves as the Chairperson for the Wisconsin Inter-Service Family Assistance Committee (ISFAC). The ISFAC meets quarterly throughout the state of Wisconsin and consists of governmental and non profit agencies located in the state for networking and sharing of information.
