Family Deployment Support
ACS Deployment & Mobilization Program
Deployment and Mobilization Program helps Soldiers and their Families manage separations before, during and after they occur. The Mobilization/Deployment Program is devoted to supporting Soldier and their Families through the Soldier Readiness Processing and Family Assistance Center during deployment.
The Mobilization/Deployment Program provides many Pre-Deployment Briefings/Fairs and Reintegration Fairs to assist Soldiers and Families in preparing for both. The Family Resource Center is devoted to support Family Readiness Groups also called the FRG. Classes are offered monthly to provide commanders, leaders and Family Members with information on how to set up and maintain a strong FRG, along with training for the unit's Point of Contacts, Treasurers and Newsletter Training Courses.
