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 READINESS AND DEPLOYMENT support program at Marine Corps Family Team Building offers a comprehensive program that deals with PRE, DURING, and POST DEPLOYMENT.
Some of the opportunities are as follows:
PRE-DEPLOYMENT BRIEFS assist service members and their families in preparing and coping with the changes and difficulties of deployment.
KIDS N DEPLOYMENT event is a workshop developed for children with a deployed parent. This event offers age appropriate activities that are designed to assist children with processing their feelings and struggles.
BEYOND THE BRIEF is a series of workshops and discussions centered on deployment topics. In the Midst is an event that offers a celebration for "making it half way" and offers stress relief tips and enhancement tools that assist spouses to feel better prepared to face the "rest" of the deployment.
The KIDS N REUNION Workshop focuses on the unique stresses and struggles that children, youth and teens may encounter before the return of a deployed parent. The workshop offers age appropriate activities and discussion that is designed to educate and assist the participant with adjusting to the return.
The RETURN and REUNION WORKSHOP FOR SPOUSES focus on reintegration, healthy communication, expectations, and other relevant topics.
