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 Airman and Family Readiness Center will be there to assist as you deploy. We have a mandatory briefing prior to your deployment and highly encourage spouses to attend as well! The remote tour briefing has been incorporated into the Outbound PCS Workshop. Many units invite our Readiness personnel to Commander's Calls to help you prepare. We'll be on the deployment processing line just in case you need something at the last minute.
In between the "going" and "gone"... have you prepared for your absence? Is someone keeping an eye on your home? Your car? Your bills? Do you need a power of attorney? We'll be here to help you track all of these things and more.
We're here for your family members while you are deployed:
Upon return from your deployment we'll be there to provide Reintegration support. All members must attend a Reintegration briefing upon return.
Fort Eustis Mobilization Deployment Support
All ACS programs assist deploying troops with a variety of services from information on play groups, coping with stress during the deployment cycle, establishing Family finances, and provide extensive resources to assist Service members and their Families during the deployment cycle and reintegration.
The Mobilization Deployment Program provides training/briefings for all service members and their Family members to prepare them with survival techniques and resources available during the deployment cycle. Training is also provided for Family Readiness Support Assistants, Rear Detachment Commanders, and FRG Volunteers to equip/educate them on their roles and responsibilities.
Returning Service members receive a Reintegration Briefing to update them on changes within the installation, local and state laws, and to provide assistance during the transitional period of reintegration. Spouses and other Family members may also receive a Spouses Reintegration Briefing to prepare them for potential issues and concerns that may or may not develop during the reintegration process.
The Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) assist commanders in maintaining readiness of Service members, Families, and the military community within the Army by promoting self-sufficiency, resiliency, and stability during peace and war.Pre-Deployment Briefings are provided for service members and for Family members. The ACS Mob Specialist coordinates with all agency presenters to insure a quality briefing is implemented. Due to the different needs of each unit, attention to special details is considered during briefing coordination.
The Mobilization Deployment Specialist provides workshops for children of deploying service members. During the workshops children receive booklets and other resource materials and are involved in interactive play activities to prepare them for the deployment cycle. They also learn how to maintain communication with the deployed parent(s), develop coping skills during the deployment cycle, and discuss expectations and feelings.
