What is an FRG?
The FRG is a command sponsored organization of all assigned Soldiers (married and single), DA civilians, volunteers and their families (immediate and extended) that together provide mutual support and assistance and a network of communications among the family members, the chain of command, and community resources. While all of these individuals are automatically considered to be members of the FRG, participation is voluntary.
The FRG plays a vital role is assisting unit commanders with military and personal deployment preparedness and enhancing family readiness of Soldiers and families. The FRG assists unit commanders in three ways. First, the FRG conducts activities that enhance the flow of information between command and families. The FRG provides feedback on the state of the unit's families to the command and disseminates information to families received from the command. Secondly, the FRG encourages resiliency among the members by providing information, referral assistance and mutual concern. Thirdly, the FRG provides activities and support that enhance the well-being and esprit de corps within the unit.
