Team Scott Pre-deployment briefing is conducted monthly for spouses of those members tasked to deploy. Spouses will have the opportunity to learn about the deployment support services/programs available to their families and network with other spouses. Topics addressed include, deployment bands, A&FRC services/programs and the Key Spouse program.
Mass pre-deployment briefings are conducted every Tuesday informing members of the support services available through the A&FRC and other support agencies.
Sustainment services are provided to families through the Hearts Apart Program (HAP) which provides morale calls, monthly & informative emails, Give Parents A Break (free childcare), free oil changes and assistance with various needs addressed/requested by families. A&FRC programs and services are available for all geographically separated families (deployed, remote & extended TDY).
Reintegration briefings are conducted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for members returning from deployment. Members are briefed by Public Health, Chaplain, Mental Health and A&FRC to address life post deployment and any issues/concerns that may arise.
Post deployment, commanders have the opportunity to recognize those “little ones”, who’ve made a big sacrifice. The Little Heroes Program recognizes the child or children of a member who has returned from a deployment by hosting a squadron/group presentation to recognize the children of their returnees.
Deployments are difficult on all members of the family and sometimes particularly more stressful for children; this is one way of recognizing them.
