The USACRC has updated its Family Engagement Kit developed to encourage Family Members to take an active role in their Soldier's off-duty safety, particularly those returning from a deployment.
Research has shown that some Soldiers take deployment and the return home in stride, without missing a beat, for others it not a seamless reintegration. Some individuals have a more difficult time trying to re-connect with their past life or to integrate and modify their deployment behavior into their present situation.
Regardless of whether Soldiers are readying for a deployment, returning from a deployment or neither, Family Members are a front line of defense and can positively affect Soldiers behavior.
This kit has simple, yet effective, "how to" instructions combined with other useful aids to help Family Members take care of all our Soldiers.
