Uncle Sam sometimes gives members of the U.S. military very little warning when deployment is on the horizon. You might know a few months in advance or as little as a few days. When you do find out, you have to spring into action, taking care of not only your military business, but personal obligations, as well. Packing your belongings for deployment involves more than a suitcase filled with necessities (and a few of your favorite things). It also means securing the rest of your belongings to protect them when you return home from your time overseas.

Booklet from the Military Child Education Coalition created to help parents and educators, support children during this potentially stressful time. Also discuss ways that parents and educators can work together to ensure that the education process stays on track during a deployment.

Helping Little Ones Cope During Deployments

OpLove supports U.S. Military Enlisted Families with patriotic images of their enlistment, importantly before a deployment, and more importantly at their reunion when the deployment has terminated and the soldier is safely home- most people are so overwhelmed by emotions they forget to simply point and shoot their child's first hug after MONTHS of being apart from their daddy or mommy. OpLove helps families find supporting professional photographers in their area to take patriotic images of their family before a deployment and then again at their homecoming usually in an airport.

Pre-deployment checklist
