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.
Prior to deployment, contact the Fleet and Family Support Center, which can provide workshops and classes that address the many issues before, during and after deployment for single and married couples and their children.
Some of those issues are deployment readiness; financial readiness; managing separation; homecoming, return and reunion; consumer awareness; and car buying.
Discuss deployment issues with your Personal Property Shipping Office when you are reporting to a deployed command, as you may need or want to put household goods into storage before you deploy.
