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 Program goal at the Fleet and Family Support Center is to make deployments more manageable and positive for deploying sailors and families. Preparation of practical, personal and financial matters are main topics of pre-deployment briefs. In addition to Pre-Deployment briefs, the deployment program conducts Return and Reunions for spouses and sailors upon request.
As always, the friendly folks at your Naval Base Guam Fleet & Family Support Center (FFSC) will help out in times of need. Need to talk about loneliness? Call 671-333-9827/8 for a counseling appointment. And don't forget that your family back home can call on the FFSC close to them for assistance.
The FFSC offers many age appropriate brochures and booklets that are geared to helping children cope with deployments or Individual Augmentation (IA). The FFSC also offers support to families of IA members which meets once a month and is a great way to build a peer network. Call 671-333-2056/57 for more information.
