Mobilization, Deployment & SSO
- Mobilization, Deployment & SSO Overview
Mobilization, Deployment & Support Stability Operations (SSO) provides professional and timely support to active duty, Reserve and Guard Service members and their Family members through individual consultations, workshops, briefings and services developed to enhance mission preparedness and self-reliance throughout the deployment cycle. The Command and/or Family Readiness Group (FRG) may call upon us to tailor a briefing specific to their needs.
Additionally, all Soldiers processing through the JBLM Soldier Readiness Center (SRC) are briefed by a MOB/DEP Specialist on support services available to them and their Families. DPFR/AFCS maintains a site in the SRC where required Family Care Plans (FCP) are reviewed. Soldiers who require a FCP by AR 600-20 must have a completed FCP packet when they process through the ACS site.

- Family Care Plans & Contingency Plans
Family Contingency Plan – Non-required Family Care Plan is for the use of a Soldier married to a civilian and who has children. We suggest all families discuss initiating a Family Care Plan in the event of a deployment, non-command sponsored tour, or extended TDYs. It is best to have a plan in place for the care of your children should a traumatic event take place when the Soldier is away, i.e. hospitalization of spouse. Who will legally take care of your children until the Soldier returns or the spouse is capable of caring for the children? The notarized documents would go to the proposed guardian, a copy would be kept by the spouse in a place that is easy to find and a copy may be given to the Command or Rear Detachment Command.
