Deployment Readiness Program
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.
Deployment can be a highly emotional and stressful event. To help the process of deployment, the Army has created a Mobilization and Deployment Readiness Program under the purview of Army Community Service in your community, and it is available to all U.S. identification card holders and their families. This program provides information to deploying individuals and ensures that a valid plan for the care of loved ones is established during their absence. The program, which is mobile in nature, can be personalized to meet your needs. The following are programs and services available under the Mobilization and Deployment Readiness Program:
Pre-Deployment, Deployment and Post-Deployment Briefings
Pre-deployment, deployment and post-deployment briefings and training for soldiers, family members, volunteers and Family Readiness Groups include Pre-Deployment Processing, Assistance with Family Care Plan, Battlemind Training for Spouses and Exceptional Family Member Program screening.
Yellow Ribbon Room
The Yellow Ribbon Room is a gathering place for family members of deployed soldiers to communicate with their deployed spouses. The room includes a sitting area, a small children's play area, a television with a VCR, a library of family-related resources and an ACS staff facilitator available for consultation.
Morale Telephone and Video Phone Calls
Free telephone conversations are available with separated family members due to deployment, extended temporary duty assignment or during relocation worldwide. Calls are limited to 15 minutes each.
Computer Lab with Webcams
The Computer Lab with Webcams offers workstations for video email messaging with spouses down range. Unlimited use is available during operating hours.
Training and Workshops
There are many workshops that are designed to help with deployment.
Much more ... from hosting family nights to hosting homecoming and reunion activities, the Mobilization and Deployment Readiness Program is there for you during all phases of deployment.
