Hello to Everyone Reading This!My name is Nicole Campbell and I am an FRG Leader for a company that drills inGoldsboro, North Carolina. When I began working as an FRG Leader, I felt completelyoverwhelmed
 — 
our FRG did not start until after our soldiers had deployed for Iraq, so I felt like Iwas continually playing catch-up. Like other FRG leaders, I was given a huge pile of paper,each one advertising website or another 
 — 
after one week, I had a filing box full of resources.But in trying to put together newsletters and references for Families, I realized that my filing boxwas not a very efficient way to organize information. Thus, this manual was created.You might be confused as to why some categories are included in this manual (i.e., Navy& Marines, Air Force, etc.) This was done on purpose
 — 
I know that in my particular company,several of our Soldiers have previously served full-time or are married to members of other  branches of the military. Also, there are resources for individual states included. While theymay not directly apply to you and your state, they are helpful in looking at what other states aredoing to support Soldiers and their Families. In addition, with the way Soldiers are assigned tocompanies, many states can be represented in one unit. During deployments, you may haveFamily members all over the country
 — 
in our case, we had Families in 12 states!There are also small explanations from the sites themselves, which explain what theorganization does. I did not include for-profit sites. While there are some great businessesoffering quality products for Soldiers and their Families, I cannot personally vouch for any businesses and do not want to be responsible for referring anyone to an unscrupulous site.Finally, you will notice that not all the states or websites are represented in this manual.This is definitely on ongoing project
 — 
every two or three months I go through and edit the sites.Some are no longer online. I also try to include any new sites that have been referred to me byother readers. If you have any suggestions to make this better, please let me know atncampbell07@gmail.com. Thank you so much for your patience and attention
 — 
and I hope you find this a usefultool in your work! Thanks for all you do to help your Soldiers and Families! Nicole CampbellFRG Leader C. Co. (Goldsboro) 230th BSB 30th HBCT North Carolina Army National Guard
