Interested in volunteering for your SFRG?

Volunteers are the foundation of all SFRGs. Command teams often rely on SFRG volunteers to help execute their Soldier and Family Readiness plan.  There are many different volunteer opportunities within the SFRG. Contact your unit SFRG leader, family readiness liaison or commander for information on how you can be a part of the SFRG volunteer Family.
