How important are pre-deployment briefings for families?  
Pre-deployment briefings are very important for families, even for those families who have experienced many deployments in the past. Useful information is provided to Soldiers and family members at pre-deployment briefings. Also, there usually are representatives from many of the military community agencies (legal, medical, housing, finance, chaplain, etc.) at these briefings, who are there to answer questions and provide on-the-spot services. For example, the legal representative may be able to generate Powers of Attorney or set up appointments to develop a Family Care Plan or will. The Finance representative can provide answers to questions about separation pay or other changes that the service member may see on his Leave and Earning statement (LES) once he/she is deployed. Pre-deployment briefings are also a good time for Soldiers and family members to update their emergency tracking forms and/or contact information for the Family Readiness Group (FRG) and/or Rear Detachment Commander. Pre-deployment briefings provide a forum to allow Soldiers to plan for their upcoming military duty away from home and prepare them and their families for the separation.
