Operation READY

Operation Resources for Education About Deployment and You (Operation READY)

Operation READY is a training and information resource developed after the Persian Gulf War from lessons learned and has been updated periodically during Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. These training and resource materials are intended for individual Soldiers/DA Civilians, Family members and Family program staff of active duty Reserve Components. Other Army Family program professionals, unit leaders, Chaplains, Family Readiness Group leaders, Family Readiness Support Assistants (FRSAs), and volunteers can benefit from review of specific Operation READY handbooks and guides. These materials provide guidance on supporting Soldiers/DA Civilians and Family members through stages of the ARFORGEN cycle process, RESET, Train/Ready and Available.

The training and resource materials include:

  • Handbooks/Guides which provide information to different audiences such as Family program staff, unit leaders, Care Team volunteers, Soldiers/DA Civilians and Family members.
  • Facilitators' Guides with accompanying PowerPoint and handouts, found only on the ASC Staff Site, provide training resources for Family program staff.
  • The Smart Book provides supplemental information, regulations, policy guidance and other key information.
