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.
Soldiers arriving at Picatinny Arsenal may be assigned to a unit that is slated for deployment overseas. Deployment is a fact of life in the military, and Picatinny Arsenal's Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation works hard to support soldiers and their families as they experience deployment at every stage. Army Community Service programs such as Mobilization and Deployment, Army Family Team Building, Financial Readiness, Outreach Services and Family Advocacy work hard to provide soldiers and family members with the tools and resources needed to prepare for and deal with the emotional rigors of deployment.
