About Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program Events

Head off deployment stress and uncertainty by attending a local Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program event. All National Guard and Reserve Components hold events and activities to give you and your loved ones valuable information on benefits, services, and resources that are available before, during and after the deployment.

Did you know...

  • National Guard mandates its members to attend, and Family members are strongly encouraged to attend as well. Even children can participate in events where childcare and Child & Youth programs are provided.
  • If your chain of command approves, you may attend another Unit or Service Component’s Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program event if your unit’s event is too far away. Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program events provide the same information regardless of the Service Component or unit affiliation. To attend another unit’s event, ask your chain of command for permission and register for the event near you.
  • Your Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program Event Coordinator and unit Command has the most up-to-date and accurate information about the program and its benefits. You can find your local Event Coordinator on the JSS Resource Finder.
