Training, or Military Lifestyle, is an ongoing
process that permeates each step of your Guard Member’s military career. This step
prepares you for Step 4, Pre-Deployment, but it is also a step in Family Readiness
that can be taken before, during, or after deployment. Some trainings help build
an understanding of military life and military expectations. Others focus on military
benefits and resources available to the family.
Army Family Team Building (AFTB) program is a volunteer-led
organization with a central tenet: provide training and knowledge to spouses and
family members to support the total Army effort. It is AFTB’s mission to educate
and train all of the Army in knowledge, skills, and behaviors designed to prepare
our Army families to move successfully into the future.
The Air Force Family Readiness Edge is a total force community resource directory
designed to assist members of the Integrated Delivery System (IDS) to support family
members whose sponsors are involved in deployment and mobilization. The Air Force
Family Readiness EDGE lists and describes Air Force and their resources, their web
