Kids Information on Deployment Stuff

Today's military family faces a lifestyle that is comprised of frequent deployments, which results in increased family separations. This often proves to be a stressful challenge for military families. To assist the military's efforts to keep both troops and their families prepared, there are several programs which support the readiness of families. The information in this section will assist servicemembers and their families in preparing for and coping with deployments. This site contains family support links for each of the services, as well as information for children, locating servicemembers and deployment entitlements.
