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.

Contact is essential when the member is notified of TDY, deployment, or remote duty assignment that wills geographically separate the member from family for a period of fourteen days or more. The Military and Family Support Center will provide you with a readiness briefing tailored to fit your needs. The briefing will address key issues that may arise during the separation.
