Deployment Support Program

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.
Deployments are an inevitable part of military life. Despite the challenges of separation and change, deployments can be managed. Information and skill building is key to managing deployment. The quarterly IA Provider meetings are designed to provide a linkage to Command Leadership along with the FFSC to provide the necessary information on the deployed service members. The IDSS (Individual Deployment Support Specialist) is responsible for tracking family members contact and coordination with (CAIC) Command IA Coordinators.
Years of experience and knowledge about the deployment process makes it possible to design a series of informational programs and support services. Over the years, Fleet & Family Support Center (FFSC) has provided assistance in three stages of the deployment cycle:Pre-Deployment
The FFSC assists Sailors and their families with pre-deployment brief, during deployment, post-deployment briefs, return and reunions, discussion groups, and other outreach programs designed specifically for the deployment community. Active Duty personnel and their family members are contacted by a staff member throughout the deployment and provided with quality information pertaining to their individual needs. An FFSC Point of Contact is provided for a one-on-one personal touch. At FFSC, we recognize all family members including spouses, children, mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, fiancée, etc. Monthly Pre-Deployment and Post Deployment briefs are held monthly on the first Tuesday of each month to educate and dispense information to service members and their families. Presentations topics include Legal, Medical, PFM, PSD, Ombudsman, CAIC, and IDSS which provides pertinent information about deployment and local resources to service members and their families. Our IDSS is standing by to support our service members and their families during this rewarding and challenging period.
