Our Mission:

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a foundation document for the future of the SFRG program - Appendix J of Army Regulation 608-1 Army Community Service superseded by this directive.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!!

ARMY FAMILY ACTION PLAN (AFAP)

Changing the Army One Issue at the Time!

 
The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is your platform to voice quality-of-life issues, feedback, ideas, and suggestions. It’s the best way to let Army leadership know about what works, what doesn’t, and how you think problems can be resolved. We give Active and Reserve Component Soldiers, Army Civilians, Retirees, Survivors, and Family members a primary tool to help identify issues and concerns and shape your standards of living.
 
You can submit issues at your garrisons Army Community Service office or online liaison. Army OneSource also facilitates AFAP issues online and makes sure your concerns get the attention they deserve. The information you submit gives Army leadership insight and helps foster a satisfied, informed, and resilient Army Community.
 
AFAP makes a meaningful difference. Since AFAP was created in 1983, over 698 issues have been submitted, resulting in 128 legislative changes, 186 Department of Defense or Army policy changes, and 210 improved programs or services
