Personal & Family Readiness
The family readiness program helps families deal with separations during deployments and remote assignments. Some initiatives include free phone calls, child care, bowling, email availability, video telephone connections and a comprehensive information package as well as in-depth, pre-deployment briefings and monthly Deployed Family Socials.
Relocating can be difficult on spouses who find their job skills don’t match local employment needs. Make an appointment to have your resume reviewed and get a feel for local employment possibilities.
