About Fleet and Family Readiness
Fleet & Family Support Center
Are you getting ready to relocate to a new duty station? Did you know the Relocation Assistance Program can help you in a variety of ways? Just to let you know, we have a number of ways of assisting you. Worldwide Welcome Aboard Packages for different U.S. and overseas military installations are available for a one-week checkout while you are waiting for your own Welcome Aboard Package to arrive. We also have a variety of videos for different military installations available for a one-week checkout. We do not have all military installations but we may just have the one you’re looking for.
Loaner Kits which include dishes, pans, cutlery and other kitchen items to help you during household goods pack-outs or while you are waiting for your household goods to arrive. Additionally, our Loan Closet includes a limited supply of coffee pots, toasters, can openers, irons & ironing boards, and some infant furniture & car seats. Most of these items are available for a 30-day loan period, unless otherwise specified.
Language tapes now available for check out. We have language tapes for families PCSing to Japan and Italy. For families stationed at NASK, we have Spanish I and II language tapes available to help you familiarize yourself with the Spanish language (which can helpful with employment in this area or when you visit Mexico). Additionally, if English is not your first language, we have English Language tapes available to help you practice.
