Family Readiness Groups


The Family Readiness Groups of 3d CR provide activities and support that enhance the flow of information, morale, 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—especially during times of deployment. As an official command-sponsored organization, Family Readiness Groups gain their strength from the family members, volunteers and Soldiers who belong to a unit. Together, we all work to provide an avenue of mutual support and assistance based on a network of communications among family members, the chain of command and community resources.
