Halloween is just around the corner and this festive celebration can sometimes be an unofficial kick off to the fall and winter holiday seasons that are full of community and Family gatherings. Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) are one tool that the Army uses to provide an opportunity for Soldiers and Families to become part of their community and unit Family. The mission of the FRG is to: Act as an extension of the unit in providing official, accurate command information; Advocate more efficient use of available community resources; Assist Families in resolving issues at the lowest level; and Provide mutual support between the command and the FRG membership.

When these all volunteer groups work well they are a trusted resource of information, provide communication between the commander and the Families and offer social opportunities for their members. While we know how hard our FRG volunteers and members work, sometimes a group does not come together as well as we would all hope they would. What has been your experience with FRGs? What tips do you have to get the most out of participating in an FRG? We look forward to hearing from you.
