Not all BYR events are the same. Each event is tailored to the needs of the unit based on the particular phase of the deployment cycle. That means you can expect different information and resources at “pre-Mobilization”
events compared to the “reunion” or “re-integration” events. Soldiers, Airmen, and families have different experiences throughout the deployment cycle and BYR coordinates need bases resources and services bringing them
together all at one location.
The BYR Program Director and her team work closely with the unit leaders to plan the event. Part of the planning process is to communicate important information to unit members and families. Location and venue are
determined by a number of deploying service member, parents, siblings, children, and designated points of contact (POC), i.e. your bestie, neighbor, significant other, etc.
