Return and Reunion Support for Sailors and their Families
A great deal of attention is paid to the preparation for the beginning of the deployment when the Sailor leaves their families and partners for overseas operations. We can all understand the worry and the feelings of loss and loneliness a military deployment can bring to a family. But the return and reunion with families and partners can be just as stressful -- sometimes more so. Homecoming has been described as the most thought about and yet least prepared for part of a deployment. The difficulties and strains of return can be surprising and sometimes painfully disappointing to military families. But there are steps IA Sailors and their loved ones can take to make the transition back as joyful and stress-free as possible.
