Deployment Readiness

Geographic separation due to deployment, remote tours, or extended TDY can be challenging, but it can also provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. The Joint Base San Antonio Readiness NCOs, or RNCOs, are available to assist service members and their families through the three stages of deployment (pre-deployment, deployment, and reintegration).

Hearts Apart is an optional program designed to keep geographically-separated families informed and connected. The goal is to develop an adaptable community in which families can access the support they need through the many life changes that military commitment brings. Activities and events vary based on customer interaction and feedback. To get involved, simply contact one of the three JBSA Military & Family Readiness Centers. You can also stay informed via the JBSA Hearts Apart Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/JBSAHEARTSAPART.
