These innovative resources prepare fathers - and their families - for the difficulties of deployment and reunion. Strong and ready fathers increase military family readiness, helping families successfully navigate the stresses of military life.

The Facts

  • Around 1.8 million children of military dads are affected by the unique stresses of military life, and can unfortunately experience similar negative effects of father absence as children who do not even have involved, committed dads in their lives.
  • Approximately 593,000 active-duty service members and nearly 300,000 U.S. reservists are dads.
  • 150,000 military fathers are currently deployed, with deployments ranging from 30 days to 15 months.
  • Military fathers desperately need resources to prepare them for deployment, and stay connected with children while away.
