This Army Family Readiness Group Leader’s Handbook is designed to be used by Family Readiness Group (FRG) leaders in the active, Guard, and Reserve Components. The handbook provides updated information regarding FRGs. A battalion commander/Rear Detachment Commander (RDC) oversees and supports all company FRGs directly and indirectly through company level commanders and a battalion FRG steering committee. When there is a battalion FRG, then the battalion commander/RDC works with the battalion FRG leader in the same manner as described above. However, if the Battalion commander chooses to have a single FRG for the battalion, the next higher level commander shall establish the advisory steering committee for the brigade’s FRGs.
