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.
Deployment is a way of life for many of our Marines, sailors and their family members in Hawaii. The Marine Corps Family Team Building office has pre- and post-deployment education for Marines, sailors and family members at 808-257-2650.
The Marine & Family Programs offers a variety of support programs, services, information and resources to ensure family readiness. The Marine & Family Services Information & Referral may be reached at 808-257-7786.
