Post-Deployment Assistance Web Site

TRICARE Updates Post-Deployment Assistance Web Site

TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) on March 9 announced upgrades to its post-deployment Web site designed to help servicemembers and their families readjust to life after a return home from a combat zone. Launched last year, the site, www.afterdeployment.org, was designed to provide strategies and educational materials that address a range of post-deployment issues, including combat stress; conflict at work; reconnecting with family and friends; living with physical injuries; and health and wellness. The updated Web site features workshops in its “Improving Relationships” program, as well self-help workshops and activities in its “Helping Kids Deal with Deployment,” “Seeking Spiritual Fitness,” and “Controlling Drugs and Alcohol” sections. “Users report very positive feelings about the usefulness and quality of information available on Afterdeployment.org,” said Army Maj. Gen. Elder Granger, TMA deputy director. “It’s a free resource that can be very helpful for veterans transitioning back from their deployment.”
