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 Program is here to build resilient military families. The program's primary mission is to ensure commanders, soldiers and family members are prepared for all cycles of the deployment phase. The program provides training to rear detachment teams, family readiness group leaders, and unit points of contacts to allow them to better help soldiers and families. The program also provides deployment and reunion briefings as well as operates a family assistance center during times of deployment, emergencies and natural disasters.
The Fort Stewart Family Readiness Center is 5,000 square feet of family-friendly space. The FRC serves as a hub for family events on Fort Stewart. At any given time, a variety of activities are taking place at the FRC. You’ll see families utilizing computers with internet access and video-cams; Family Readiness Group Training take place with virtual training; community mayors volunteering their time; Army family team-building classes, or many appreciation ceremonies and special events to celebrate volunteers and families.
