The more you understand and feel a part of your Servicemember’s mission, the easier it will be to adapt to the separations, deployments, and relocations.

Military families often exhibit specific traits which set them apart from other families:

  • Patriotism
  • Adaptability
  • Resourcefulness

The military enhances family readiness by providing resources to assist the family while fostering their independence. Both military and civilian community resources are available to assist your family. Awareness and understanding of the resources are available and how to access them can empower you to better manage your life during times of deployments and separation.
