Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) demonstrates the Army's commitment to Families of the Fallen. The mission of SOS is to provide enhanced services to these Families. SOS utilizes a holistic and multi-agency approach to delivering services to Survivors by providing services at the garrison and communities closest to where Families live. SOS will allow the Army to better identify the needs of others touched by the loss of a Soldier.
