Family Readiness Groups / Mobilization & Deployment

The Family Readiness Group (FRG) is a command-sponsored organization of Family Members, volunteers and Soldiers.

Together they provide mutual support and assistance creating a network of communication between Family Members, the Chain of Command and community resources.

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? Army Community Service is looking for individuals who are interested in taking on such a task. FRGs help create a climate of mutual support within the unit and community. FRGs play an integral part in the Family and Soldier Readiness System (FSRS).
