Deployment services are educational and support programs that assist family members and deploying commands to successfully manage the separation/reunion cycles associated with military duty. The Navy ensures the Sailors know their families will be cared for during deployments.
In order to reduce personal and family emergencies, stress of separation and to assist active duty service members and families in preparing for deployment, services are provided before, during and after deployments.
The Expeditionary Combat Readiness Command hotline for active-duty and reserve Sailors’ families on Individual Augmentee orders is toll-free (877) 364-4302. It provides family members a way to find the information or resources they may need while their Sailors are deployed.
