Waiting Families is for or any Spouse and or Family Member (must be 18 years of age) which is not able to travel with their Soldier due to an unaccompanied tour or other extenuating circumstances (ex: TDY, deployment, etc).  It provides support which ranges from special events to follow-up phone calls to see how enrollees are doing.

In addition, it provides participants with a liaison to keep them connected with the nearest installation to where they are living.  Enrollees are also able to connect with other Families to grow their support systems which can make all of the difference. 

United Through Reading

Program is open to all Soldiers deploying, mobilizing, on TDY or PCSing to another duty station unaccompanied.  Soldier is able to select a book and be recorded reading it for their child.  The video is downloaded on a DVD and given to the Soldier or Spouse along with the book for the child.
