When you move to a new duty station, especially overseas, the Army becomes your family. Get connected to your FRG to meet families from your Soldier’s new unit and stay in the loop regarding official unit information and events.
WHAT IS A FAMILY READINESS GROUP?
FRGs are an official command-sponsored program found at each level of the Army. FRGs help families, Soldiers, and the chain of command all stay connected, especially during deployments and trainings. FRGs are a key part of a unit’s resiliency and readiness because strong families equal strong Soldiers. FRGs provide:
- Official info about your Soldier’s unit & community
- Support, resources, and outreach to families
- Outings and opportunities to build friendships
- Volunteer opportunities (FRG Leader, Key Caller, Treasurer, Care Teams, Spouse Sponsor, etc.)
YOUR CONTACT INFO IS IMPORTANT!
To maintain readiness, FRGs assist units in updating family contact rosters. This ensures units can communicate with families regarding official unit info, deployments, or alerts. Please be proactive! Send your contact info to your FRG, even if you don’t plan on being an active FRG member.
