Military partners with communities to extend services

As a result of multiple deployments over nearly nine years of war in two theaters, many families of service members are choosing to remain in their established neighborhoods or return to a relative's hometown when their Soldier deploys.

In many cases, this means resources commonly found on military installations aren't available to them for the duration of the deployment.

The Army has hired 61 community support coordinators located across the U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa and Japan to help connect these geographically dispersed military personnel with community service systems.
