Family readiness programs are a command responsibility. The command’s leadership (which includes senior unit enlisted personnel as its most vital element) and demonstrated concern for families before, during, and after a deployment/ mobilization can directly impact the success of many of your unit’s efforts. Commanders must clearly articulate their goals and vision for family readiness. Senior non-commissioned officers’ full support of this command vision is also critical. Empowering families to be self-sufficient, especially during times of mobilization and training, pays immeasurable dividends to unit commands and personnel.
