Deployment Readiness

Spending time with family before departure

The Fleet and Family Support Center offers a variety of deployment support programs to assist Commands, Sailors and their families.

Use this Deployment Checklist to keep track of all your preparations for your next deployment. Your local Fleet and Family Support Center is available to help you prepare.

Read this month's Family Connection (previous editions).



Fleet and Family Support Centers offer programs to ensure you are ready for deployment.

During Deployment

Fleet and Family Support Centers focus on families during deployments. Your FFSC offers programs and services that will empower you.

Return and Reunion

Reuniting after a long deployment is fun, exciting and one of the best things about Navy life. Enjoy homecoming and be prepared to renegotiate your relationship as you reconnect.


After the homecoming celebration is over, establishing the "new" normal can take several months or more.

Family Readiness Groups

The Family Readiness Groups Toolkit provides the nuts and bolts needed to establish, run and maintain a successful Family Readiness Group.

Command Representative Program

The Command Representative Program expands FFSP’s mission by assigning individual liaisons to each command.
