Deployment services are educational and support programs which assist family members and deploying commands to successfully manage the separation / reunion cycles associated with military duty.
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 (ECRC) headquartered at Amphibious Base Little Creek, Norfolk, Va., has established a hotline for active-duty and reserve Sailor’s families on Individual Augmentee (IA) orders.
The toll free phone number, 877-364-4302, provides IA family members a way to find the information or resources they may need while their Sailors are deployed.
The bottom line: even though the Navy is doing new missions and in different ways than we’ve done it in the past by having IAs from multiple commands, the Navy is still going to care for its family members the way it always has. The Navy will let the Sailor know their families are going to be cared for while they’re deployed. We want to make sure they know that even though their Sailor is off, they still have that feeling of belonging, and we will continue to take care of our family members.
