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.
Family Readiness Program
The Family Readiness Program is designed to enhance family readiness and to keep family lines of communication open during deployments or temporary travel duty. The Ramstein Military and Family Readiness Center readiness noncommissioned officer and staff strive to prepare service/family members for impending stages of deployment including pre-deployment, deployment and reintegration. The team works closely with unit leadership especially first sergeants and key spouses. Hearts Apart events occur every month to support those families left behind by deployed members.
Mandatory pre-deployment briefings are conducted in a variety of forums including commanders calls, spouse groups, mobility lines, mass briefings at the Military and Family Readiness Center and individually. Briefings are mandatory for those deploying for 30 days or more. Service members are provided with recommendations relating to personal affairs and available resources, family care plans, financial planning, wills and powers of attorney. Spouses are highly encouraged to attend.
Activities for Deployed Family Members
Various activities are designed to engage the military families of deployed members. Deployed family events are conducted on a monthly basis. Contact the M&FRC for more information.
The reintegration stage is often the most neglected aspect of the deployment. It is critical that members understand that relationship changes will occur, and readjustment must take place. The mandatory reintegration briefing can be found on the 86 FSS website.
