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.
Robins Air Force Base Family Readiness program provides assistance to spouses and family members while the military member is deployed/temporary duty travel for more than 30 days or serving on a remote tour. Pre-Deployment briefings are held Wednesdays with a start time of 9:00 a.m. in Bldg 127. Reintegration briefings are held Mondays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 9:00 a.m. in Bldg 127.
Assistance is provided through many services to include:
In addition, contact with another military family center is available if the family will be relocating during the family separation.
The Airman and Family Readiness Noncommissioned Officer also develops base plans for responding to family needs during natural disasters or local emergencies.
If your family will not be joining you at Robins Air Force Base, start making arrangements early to make the separation easier. Setting up two separate households, banking arrangements, allotments, communications and transportation, and just about every other aspect of your life together must be looked at and sorted out. If you have children, don't forget their needs. Deal with the stress associated with the family separation up front. It will make future problems seem less urgent. Don't try to do it alone. Use the base and community resources at your disposal. They are there to make your relocation as smooth and painless as possible for both you and your family. The A&FRC has Accredited Financial Counselors and a Certified Financial Planner on staff to assist you with planning major financial changes.
