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 Mobilization and Deployment Readiness Program provides Soldiers and emergency-essential civilians, their Families, Family Readiness Group Leaders, Commanders and Rear Detachment Commanders, First Sergeants, and activated Guard and Reserve Component (RC) forces the necessary training and resources to ensure mission readiness. Included are the tools for training and preparing for Stability and Support Operations (includes mass casualties, evacuation and natural disasters) and all phases of the Deployment Cycle: Pre-Deployment, Deployment and Post-Deployment. The materials are designed to support unit commanders in preparing service members, civilian employees, and their Families for ongoing military operations. Call the Mobilization and Deployment Readiness office at 703-696-3510 for more information and training & support options.
