Contact information for key programs and services at this installation.
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 Military and Family Support Center plays a key role in assisting service members and families before, during, and after deployment plus return and reunion support. The program is designed to help service members and their families successfully manage the challenges of deployment (separation and deployment) by helping them to better anticipate and understand the associated physical and emotional demand.

Deployment readiness is a priority for Commands, Service Members and their Families. Major changes in one's life, such as deployment, can cause an individual to feel that events are out of his/her control. Recognizing that deployments are an inevitable part of military life, Military and Family Support Center, working in concert with Command Leadership, Family Readiness Groups and Ombudsmen, act as the safety net and provide the necessary information and practical skills that allow active duty and family members to cope with deployment challenges.
