Deployed-Affected Programming

Deployed-Affected Programming allows all Air Force assigned service members returning from deployments, or dependent-restricted assignments, and their family members to participate in FSS recreational activities. Eligible family members may participate while the member is gone and/or upon their service member’s return. Members who have deployed in support of an active operation and/or who are on a dependent-restricted assignment, and their dependents, are eligible for this initiative. The goal is to provide deployed-affected and dependent-restricted Air Force assigned service members and their families relief from the challenges they face by offering the opportunity to recharge through MWR focused social, recreational, fitness and learning programs. This specific program is for deployed-affected & dependent-restricted assigned Air Force personnel and their family members.
