Readiness & Deployment Support is a collection of trainings/briefs designed to educate and prepare military personnel and their families to cope with the changes and challenges of all types of deployments and family separations. Designed specifically for Marines, families and extended family members, these programs increase awareness of relevant readiness issues, while offering individual creative solutions to build a healthier family and ensure all are aware of the vast resources available to them as Marine Corps families. Additionally, briefs provide an opportunity for Marines and their families to meet the Command team members, and the Family Readiness Officer, who all provide support to Marines and Families throughout any type of deployment.
Training is offered by Marine Corps Family Team Building. Readiness and deployment support training will prepare military families for the unique challenges of a deployment while maintaining a constant state of readiness independent of deployment. Contact your local by Marine Corps Family Team Building office to meet one-on-one with the office Director and trainers to discuss unit focus/limitations and relay concerns and expectations so the training/briefs can be tailored to the needs of the individual units.
