Rapid mobilization, deployment, or even temporary duty does not have to create unnecessary hardships. A good first step is preparing for separations before they happen.

What's New

New DoD website available on strengthening America's Military Families DoD has stood up a special website called "Strengthening Our Military Families: Meeting America's Commitment External Link: Leaving Fort Detrick Website," the government wide plan announced to strengthen military family support.

Department of Defense Expands Community-based Child Care Options The Department of Defense (DoD) will launch an initiative early next year aimed at expanding the quality of community-based child care options for geographically dispersed reserve and active-duty Families and for Families facing long waits for on-base care. Through the initiative DoD will work with federal agencies, state officials and child care centers and programs to raise the quality of care within communities, which should translate to an increased child care capacity for military Families. A lack of community-based care particularly impacts National Guard and Army Reserve Families, who typically are geographically separated from on-base care centers. We have three things we know are critical: availability, affordability and quality, Barbara Thompson, director of the Pentagon's office of Family policy/children and youth, said. Through the initiative, DoD officials will share lessons learned from the military child care system and also offer support to states to improve the quality of the child care standards and oversight.
