Deployment is never easy and often takes a toll on both the service member and their family. The Readiness Program explains and educates both service members and their families on the 3 stages of the deployment cycle (Pre-deployment, Deployment, and Reintegration) other aspects of the military life.
The mission of Mobilization & Deployment Readiness is to develop an adaptable community in which service members and their families are prepared for deployment, have access to the support they need throughout its course, and are prepared for the unique challenges they face when their service member returns.
The Hearts Apart program is open to families that are geographically separated due to deployment, remote tour, or extended TDY. It's designed to assist family members in making prolonged separations more bearable. Hearts Apart helps military families stay connected, provides inform on resources and services available, and assistance with various needs or requests addressed by the families.
