The Family Readiness Group (FRG) is a Battalion Commander supported program that consists of concerned and willing family members and the unit’s “chain of command.” The FRG is an established program that provides a support system for all soldiers, family members and the unit during their “tour of duty” with the Baltimore Recruiting Battalion.
Every spouse, within the battalion, is encouraged to actively participate in our Family Readiness Group. Each individual member’s voice adds another idea problems and family concerns and is a great way to make new friends and reduce the tension of feeling that you are alone or isolated.
The Battalion Commander is responsible for providing for the morale and welfare of his assigned soldiers and their families. Along with the Battalion Commander, the FRG and FRG representatives assist in providing support and outreach to family members.
Each company within the battalion has FRG representatives and an established “chain of concern.” The representatives are caring individuals whose main purpose is to assist you with your concerns, organize family readiness activities, and provide information or refer family members when in need. They assist the Battalion Commander and Company Commander in ensuring that a soldier and his family’s “quality of life” remains a high command priority.
The battalion’s Soldier and Family Assistance Program Manager is available to assist you in any way possible. Baltimore Battalion’s Soldier and Family Assistance Program Manager can be reached at 301-677-7060.
