Making sure those that are remotely stationed, and those that aren’t close to a larger base, has been something I’ve been passionate about for many years. When I first started getting out there to advocate for this group of people I was a young MilSpouse with a one year old. It was 2007 and I jumped feet first into the EANGUS community with the goal of spreading the word about young military families. I am pleased to bring you more information about the Yellow Ribbon Program, which is available to National Guard and Reserve families (of any branch). As an Air Guard family, we frequently were able to participate in programs originally designed or created for Army Guard families. The same thing goes for the Strong Bonds program, so make sure to look for those as well.
The Yellow Ribbon Program offers several tips to make sure you have the support and help you need to get through the toughest things the military has to offer.
You can find more resources specifically for National Guard and Reserve on my General Military tab. Make sure to check out the other resources listed under MilSpouse and Family Support. Many of the programs listed there offer specific help to those that are in the National Guard and Reserves.
If you feel like you are missing a program in your area, or are having trouble locating one please leave me a comment or email me cammostylelove (at) yahoo (dot) com. I’ll be happy to help, or point you in the right direction.
