SURVIVOR OUTREACH SERVICES, or SOS, demonstrates the Army’s commitment to families of the fallen by providing support and standardized services to active, Reserve, and Army National Guard Families. SOS is a holistic and multi-agency approach to delivering these services by providing access at garrisons and communities closest to where families live.

SOS provides long-term support to surviving families of fallen Soldiers. Our goal is to reassure survivors that they remain valued members of the Army Family. The SOS program connects you with people who can help. Our services include grief counseling, financial counseling, benefits coordination, support groups, and garrison and surrounding area events.
