Soldier & Family Readiness Support Services

The Department of Defense goal for family readiness is to ensure that military families are prepared and equipped with the tools to successfully navigate the challenges of military life. 

Our Soldier & Family Readiness Specialists (S&FRS) support unit, volunteer lead, Soldier & Family Readiness Groups (S&FRG) in the Wisconsin National Guard. The main objective of the S&FRG is to serve as a vital communication link between unit commanders and military families. 

The S&FRS team assists unit leaders with maintaining the continuity and stability of S&FRGs as units undergo change in unit leadership and volunteers. For more information, call 1-800-292-9464 option 1.
