Question:
Where can I get assistance with fundraising questions I have for our Family Readiness Group?

Answer:
The Army Family Readiness Group (FRG) Leader's Handbook is a good resource for fundraising questions. You can also seek assistance from the military community's Legal Assistance Office and the FRG Liaison Office in the Army Community Center.

Question:
Who do I contact for juvenile delinquency prevention and control?

Answer:
Each state in the U.S. has an Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention that works with local agencies and schools to coordinate programs, policies and studies to prevent and control juvenile delinquency such as student courts, mentoring programs and juvenile boot camps. Your local schools, libraries, and law enforcement agencies should be able to provide some information or check your local phone book or the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) website for links to programs in your area (http://ojjdp.ncjrs.org/index.html).

Question:
Why is it important for me to have a will?

Answer:
It is important to have a will to ensure that your personal wishes are carried out upon your death. If a will is not in place, your assets will be distributed according to the laws in the state of your demise. If you have minor children, it is especially important for you to have a will. Your military community Staff Judge Advocate (SJA) Office can assist you and your spouse (if applicable) in preparing wills.
