Deployment - Predeployment

Our Air Force members and their families deserve the best support possible with the challenges of deployment.

Pre-deployment support for service members and families begins with a pre-deployment consultation that is mandatory for the deploying Airman; families are strongly encourage to attend


  • The consultation includes information on deployment stress, staying connected, sustainment services offered during the deployment, and return and reunion support
  • Personal & Family readiness is emphasized in three key areas:  finances, legal matters, and personal details
  • A&FRC staff contact identified family members to inform them of resources and services available if they are unavailable to attend the consultation
