Family Readiness

The purpose of the 114th Fighter Wing Family Readiness team is to empower, educate, and support our service members and their families. The Airman & Family Program is a special program designed to enhance National Guard readiness, retention, and quality of life, as well as minimize the impact to families of deployed personnel. The Readiness Program makes families aware of their importance to the National Guard and its mission. It also notifies families of available benefits, entitlements, and services.

Psychological Health

The purpose of the Psychological Health Program is to provide consultation, counseling, and referral services to the Airmen and families to enhance readiness and support the mission of the 114th Fighter Wing. We work closely with the Family Readiness program to provide assistance with emotional, psychological, and relationship issues that may have a detrimental affect on Airmen and their families.

Yellow Ribbon Reintegration

The legislatively mandated Yellow Ribbon program provides information, services, referrals and proactive outreach programs to service members and their families through all phases of the deployment cycle.

The intent of the program is to prepare National Guard and Reserve members and their families for the deployment, sustain their families, and reintegrate the service members with their families, communities and employers upon re-deployment or release from active duty.
