The mission of the William Beaumont Army Medical Center Soldier Family Readiness Group is to provide activities and support that will enhance the flow of information, morale, esprit de corps, and readiness within the unit. Our focus is to provide an avenue of mutual assistance and a network of communication between the family members and the chain of command at WBAMC, especially during times of deployment.
About Soldier and Family Readiness
Soldier and Family readiness is nested in the Surgeon General’s priority and solidified in the AR 600-20 the Army Command Policy.
The Department of Defense’s definition of Family Readiness promotes preparedness and self-reliance.Recently the Army’s definition of Family has been redefined to include who can be part of the Unit Family Readiness Program. For service members, Family starts with the Soldier and it branches out to those individuals who the Soldier have identified as their Family. We must ensure that those identified and who provide support to the Soldiers have the resources and support they need as well.
Department of Army Civilian and Unit volunteers are also welcome in Family Readiness meetings and events if they so desire. They are part of the Unit and have just as much need to know regarding unit information and events.
Readiness is our top priority which are aligned with the Secretary of the Army and the Chief Staff of the Army priorities to care for Soldiers, Department of the Army Civilians and their Families.
Soldier and Family Readiness Group (SFRG)
The wellbeing of today’s force is paramount to the success of any unit mission, therefore the SFRGs are instantly linked to Soldier readiness. The SFRG serves as one of the foundations for readiness of our force.
A directive signed on 1 April of 2019, as a foundation document for the future of the SFRG program - Appendix J of Army Regulation 608-1 Army Community Service superseded by this directive. The Army published HQ DA Executive Order 233-19 that provided clarity on the execution of this policy.
The Soldier and Family Readiness Group is a force multiplier that connects all Soldiers, Staff and their Families with the command team, providing a network of multiple support and information.
The WBAMC Soldier and Family Readiness Group (SFRG) meets the first Thursday of every month at 10:00 am and you are welcome to join us!!
Soldier & Family Readiness Support Assistant (SFRSA)
The WBAMC SFRSA assists in providing stability and a vibrant Soldier & Family Readiness program that links the commander’s interest and emphasis with volunteers, the SFRG, and Command Family Readiness Representatives; creating a unity of effort in supporting Soldiers, Civilians and Family members. The WBAMC SFRSA advocates for efficient use of community resources and may help Families solve problems at the lowest level. The SFRSA, supports the SFRG to plan and schedule activities that continuously enhance Family, Civilian and Soldier camaraderie, provide stress relief and reduce loneliness both in garrison and during deployments.
