The American Red Cross offers this overview of practical matters you may want to discuss with your service member before he/she leaves on deployment. Being prepared to deal with challenges that may arise at home can give everyone some peace of mind and help the service member focus on his/her mission ahead. Post-Deployment: support Resources for Homecomings: The joy of homecoming is followed by a transition period as the entire family readjusts to being together. Family dynamics often change during the service member’s absence, with partners asSuming new roles and responsibilities, children who have grown and matured, and new family routines and schedules established. Both the service member and his/her family may have multiple challenges to manage as they readjust to these changes, reestablish bonds and confront the many details of managing a household. If the service member experiences long-term health problems that are sometimes prevalent after deployment, Such as depression, Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), the entire family has an additional challenge to manage.
