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 Family Readiness Program at the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) provides essential information and services designed to minimize the stress associated with mission related separations. There are many programs available to families who experience TDY’s of 30+ days, deployments, and remote tours. These programs will be briefed to each service member when they attend their A&FRC in/out-processing briefings. Pre-deployment briefings are held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month at the Sablich Center (Bldg 701) and Post-deployment briefings are held every Wednesday @1300 in the Sablich Center. Spouses are highly encouraged to attend these briefings. We look forward to serving you and your family. The Airman and Family Readiness Center can be reached at 228-376-8728 or DSN 312-591-8728.
This is a kid friendly deployment familiarization program for spouses and children. This event is held semi-annually and limited to the first 100 children signed up.
One weekly fifteen minute phone call is allowed to the TDY/Remote member. Uses base operators to place the phone call DSN from your home or the Airman & Family Readiness Center. Call the A&FRC to get added to the list.
