One of the greatest challenges to deployment is the task of putting the family back together again and finding your "new normal." Everyone changes during a deployment, but there are great tools for helping you find that equilibrium. But one of the keys to making the reintegration process go right is proper planning! Therefore, we have included deployment events, as well as reintegration events in this listing.
These events can be hosted by Military Ministry staff couples for your unit, chapel, or church. Or some of them you can follow our Best Practices and ask for our assistance in conducting these yourselves. For each best practice, there is a "subject matter expert" couple available for you to ask questions.
