Question / Answer

How do I find out what type of religious services, activities, and educational resources are offered in my military community?

Most (if not all) military communities publish this type of information in their Post Newspaper, on their installation website, or you can contact the specific agency whose activities you are interested in to find out what is offered and when.

How important is it for Family Readiness Groups to coordinate and/or support reunion briefings prior to a unit's redeployment?

Soldiers, and their family members who were left behind, grow and often change in some ways during deployments. It might simply be the fact that the spouse left behind has become more independent during his/her Soldier’s absence or may have become accustomed to acting as a single parent. Learning to share responsibilities again with his/her Soldier can be challenging. Similarly, the Soldier who deployed has become accustomed to a different environment and needs to re-adapt to being back home again. Even children go through an adjustment period. Reunion briefings (or reintegration training as they are also called) are used to cope with these issues. Reunion briefings are provided to Soldiers prior to their return from a lengthy deployment as part of the redeployment process. Similar training is made available to family members on the home front through Army Community Service Centers, often in coordination with post or unit chaplains. Reunion is a time of readjustment following separation. It is the process of making life “normal” again. One of the key purposes of a Family Readiness Group is to serve as a support network for Soldiers and their families, which is why coordinating and/or promoting attendance at reunion briefings is so important.
