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 & Family Readiness Flight (A&FRF) provides mobility and deployment assistance to help single and married DoD personnel and families meet pre-deployment, sustainment, reintegration, and post-deployment challenges. Services help reduce the stress of separation and reintegration, increase individual and family morale, unit cohesion, and support operational readiness.
Predeployment briefings are conducted by appointment in the Airman & Family Readiness Flight. These briefings are mandatory and help prepare Department of Defense personnel and family members for deployment.
All members will in-process with the A&FRF after they return from their deployment.
Programs are offered to DoD personnel and family members scheduled or currently TDY for more than 30 days, deployed, or serving on a remote tour.
Hearts Apart Support Group: Monthly activities and events on Kirtland AFB and in the local community. Events provide support, information, and create friendships with other families also experiencing a separation from a loved one. During the Support Group the children have craft activities and some months there are other special outings such as kids deployment line, trips to the zoo, aquarium, and other fun activities.
Give Parents A Break: Four hours of free childcare for Active Duty Air Force at the base Child Development Center and/or Youth Center. This program is usually offered the second Friday of each month from 6:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
Car Care Because We Care: Free preventative maintenance check and oil change. Service includes: oil/filter change, lubrication and vehicle safety check.
Vehicle Storage: Deployed to a combat zone, store your vehicle for free at the Kirtland Auto Hobby Shop.
