Heroes on the Home Front-Military Spouses


This months newsletter is dedicated to the spouses of Fort Drum. The spouse serves as the anchor to the military Families of our community. These special men and women are our friends, co-workers, neighbors and community members. They are the silent ranks who wait with strength as their Soldiers train and deploy. We further understand that the role of the Spouse is often a solo part. Left to maintain the household by oneself, the Spouse endures separation and the complications that arise because of it. Spouses are not only expected to keep their heads up, keep positive for themselves and their children, but also for their Soldiers morale. imagination and faith.

What You Might Need To Know from your ACS Unit Service Coordinator (USC)
When you think about Army Community Service (ACS) have you ever stopped to consider that ACS Saves Soldiers and Families money and time. Lets look at how: Army Emergency Relief (AER) is a better alternative to a Soldier in need of emergency money than civilian lending counterparts when you consider that the national bank average lending rate is 3.25% and worse by far is the payday loans averaging about 426%. A cash advance on a credit card would cost $13.99 finance charge and an annual interest rate of almost 57%. The AER lending rate is 0%. industry sector is approximately $195.00. Employment Readiness (ERP) The current national average for a headhunter to find someone a job is 15%-20% of first years salary. Cost for ERP = $0. Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) Average rate for a Respite Care provider is $15-$20 per hour. Cost to EFMP Families for Respite Care= $0. Relocation Readiness Program (RELO) Need the essentials when you first arrive or are waiting to leave? The lending closet has your essentials-pots, table, chairs, sleeping mats, etc. For a Family of four to purchase these necessities as a hold over cost would be $558.93. RELO charge for these items=$0. professionals and are free of charge. How can ACS Save you time? Let us count the minutes.

Allison Hill-The Face of an Army Spouse


and humorous. Allisons strengths that make her such a great spouse also make her a terrific member of our ACS team. I asked Allison what she liked most about her job as Volunteer Program Manager for Army Family Team Building and she replied I like the human interaction that comes with working in a positive team environment here at ACS combined,with the interaction I have with all the talented people who volunteer with Army Family Team Building. Allison stated that she loves what she is doing. Ive had jobs in the past, but when we came to Fort Drum, there wasnt a position for me so I decided it was my time to give back. Volunteering is a way to give back to your community. Even busy people have a little time they could give. she explained. When I asked Allison what she found most challenging about her position, she said her biggest adjustment has been in learning to navigate the systems that manage the program, sometimes I would find information I didnt know I was looking for! I guess, you dont know what you dont know and thats it. Allison commented that she would encourage other Spouses to get out and not be afraid to get involved with a volunteer opportunity like ACS, or specifically Army Family Team Building. Army Community Service appreciates Allison for all her hard work and all the wonderful volunteers that make ACS such a wonderful place to work. Without you, we would not be able to accommodate and support all of the Fort Drum Families and Soldiers that we do. Thank you for your hard work and professionalism. We really appreciate everything you do.

Allison Hill has been The Army Family Team Building Volunteer Program Manager at ACS since November 7, 2011. Before that, she and her husband Captain Adam Hill who is a Trail Defense attorney with JAG, were stationed at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii with their two children nine year old Ella and five year old Alex. Allison exhibits all the strengths that a military spouse must possess in order be successful while her husband is serving our nation. She is strong, confident, outgoing, personable, resilient

Yolanda Addison Keeping it Together By Being the Glue


munity has been her passion. Besides volunteering for ACS, Yolanda has been a co-leader in her FRG when they were assigned to 10th BSB Alpha Company as well as the Red Cross where she completed the Dental Assistant Program. Currently Yolanda is the Key Caller for 10 BSB HHC. Yolandas positive, enthusiastic attitude and hard work ethic has not gone unnoticed. Recently, she was awarded Commanders Public Service Award. Even with all the responsibilities that come with being a Military Spouse and an active volunteer, Yolanda keeps focus on her goals one of which is to be employed on post at Marshall Dental Clinic. Yolanda seems to be thriving as a Spouse. I asked her what she thinks being successful as a Spouse entails. She explained that it is being supportive of your Soldier at all times. During hectic times especially, you should stay calm, stay prayed up, and be the glue that holds it all together. She went on to say that Spouses should stay connected with FRGs and other Military Spouses. Its important to make the FRG your own. If you have had a negative experience, turn it to a positive by getting involved. Yolanda is an inspirational example of resilience and positive energy. We congratulate her on her accomplishments and thank her for her contributions.

Army Community Service would like to introduce you to Yolanda Addison. Yolanda has been at Fort Drum since 2008 when she and her husband SPC Kenneth Addison and their son Darrell moved here from Marriland. Soon after arriving, Yolanda set out to make a difference in the Fort Drum community. She began by volunteering for ACS and hasnt stopped since. Volunteering and giving back to the com-

Mobilization and Deployment Supporting Spouses


ACS Mobilization and Deployment (Mob/ Dep) provides trainings and classes that give support to Spouses and Soldiers with preparation and readiness for all phases of deployment. What makes our program special and what continually brings people back is our drive to meet the needs of our participants as well as our emphasis on empowerment. While in our trainings we do teach rules and regulations, we also spend a good deal of time going over scenarios and situations that our participants have gone or may go through in everyday life. The benefit of this is that when someone leaves one of our trainings they know they have received actual, practical and useful information that they can immediately adopt in their lives and roles within the Military community. For a spouse/volunteer, empowerment comes from knowing what falls into your lane, what your responsibilities are, and what is not. We thoroughly explain the actions and thought processes that make spouses successful in understanding and navigating the military culture, in which they live, work and play. This empowerment comes from knowing how the Army works, all the many agencies that exist to offer support and where to go when there is a need for that support. ACS Mob/Dep takes pride in setting spouses/ volunteers up for success by giving them accurate and honest information and referral. The classes offered by Mob/Dep include: FRG Leader Training, Informal Funds Training and Key Caller Training, as well as supplemental classes such as Key Caller Advanced, Event Planning and OPSEC for Family Members and CARE Team training. We love to hear from spouses to obtain feedback and to be sure our materials and office in general is meeting your needs. You can reach Mob/Dep at 315-7720470/2848/0500. Also, please feel free to stop by our office or visit us on our Facebook fan page: Fort Drum Mobilization and Deployment.

The 21st Century Army Volunteer


The strength of the Army lies in its Soldiers and the strength of Army communities lies in the talents, the dedication, and the commitment of its volunteers. Volunteering stabilizes our Army communities by contributing to our communitys cohesiveness, increases self reliance and enhances the well being of our Soldiers and their Families. Did you know that most Military spouses are employed outside the home? Department of Defense figures indicate that over 65% of all military spouses work. Many more would like to work, if only they could find appropriate employment opportunities. Even though a spouses employment cannot be taken into consideration in determining future assignments there is no assurance that a spouse can find a job with each of his/her partners militaryrelated moves.

spouses has a great impact on recruitment and retention in all the services. Still, as well educated as those spouses tend to be, they typically have to "start over" with each PCS (permanent change of station). The career fields theyve chosen are far more varied than those of their predecessors 20-30 years ago, when the most transportable careers for spouses were in teaching, nursing and social sciences. Spouses today are business professionals, lawyers, doctors, pilots, pharmacists as well as teachers, nurses and social workers, to name a few.

Some Benefits to Being a Military Spouse by Scarlett Sharkey


While having a husband or wife in the military can be difficult, with relocating, deployments and other worries, there are also many benefits to being a spouse. These benefits can come in many forms, such as financial, medical and Family support. The duty of the Relocation Program is to make sure that Soldiers and Family members have a smooth move. This includes not only education about the move, but also many Family support services. Arriving in a new city and discovering the best about that place is a challenge. Whether youve been here one week or one year, the Relocation Program welcomes and encourages you to join us for our narrated tour of Fort Drum and Watertown. You will gain valuable information that will help you feel more at home in the North Country. This tour is also an excellent chance to make new friends with other new Fort Drum arrivals! Perhaps one of the most difficult moves is the move the international spouse makes. The move for an international spouse means not only moving, but also moving to a foreign country. The Relocation Program hosts an International Spouses Support Group. The Relocation Programs International Spouse group is designed to connect spouses who are stationed at Fort Drum with other international spouses providing them an opportunity to network and meet others that speak their native language. The group gets together every other month at ACS to cook, learn about their new duty station and other countries, and enjoy each others company. Enjoying each others company is also a big part of the Hearts Apart Support Group. This groups mission is to support Family members whose Soldiers are deployed, serving an unaccompanied tour, or extended TDY. This group meets each month and provides support, friendship and laughter. The group does a different activity each month, letting Spouses and Family members know that they are not alone. These programs are just the catalyst for the many other things that spouses can do with the Relocation Program. Activities such as cooking classes, sewing classes and gardening are just a few of the opportunities available. The Relocation Programs mission is making every move a smooth one, from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Family support is part of that mission. The military spouse is an integral part of a successful move!

Social Network Your Way Into a Career!


well. In fact, one Soldier liked it so much; he offered his insights and benefits on LinkedIn. ERP spoke with MSG Carl Berg who has made Social Networking work for himself! MSG Berg will be transitioning out of the Military this summer and started using LinkedIn last year. He says he is a big supporter of LinkedIn because it not only allows him to find employers, but employers to find him as well. Further, LinkedIn allows him to research companies he is interested in. MSG Berg will be relocating to South Carolina and has had interviews with companies there already. He is not close enough to retirement to have any solid job offers but has made many great connections and is adding to his professional network. MSG Berg states one of the only downfalls of LinkedIn is you are not gaining the face to face time with employers. Also LinkedIn, like all networking, takes time and work and you have to be dedicated to really make it work for you! Where did MSG Berg learn about Social Networking and LinkedIn? He attended ERPs LinkedIn workshop and conducted a great deal of personal research to strengthen his skills and knowledge. Shortly after he created an account he attended the Army Career and Alumni Program Career Fair and an employer recognized him from his LinkedIn profile, MSG says he was instantly sold on the benefits of LinkedIn and social networking to find employment. The Employment Readiness Program offers the following workshops involving the use of Social Networking to help clients find a job: Networking with LinkedIn and Facebook for Marketing Development. Our goal is to empower job seekers by providing them with the most up to date tools and trends in todays competitive job market. To learn more about Social Networking and Job searching, sign up for ERPs Finding a Job using Social Networking May 16th from 9:30-11:30 at ACS.

Social networking is extremely beneficial to Spouses because they frequently move and need to have business connections and recommendations that cross geographical boundaries. Social media allows you to connect with others in your profession without ever meeting them first. This is a huge benefit because it makes it possible for you to get a line on an opportunity in a state you may be moving to before your feet are on the ground. Besides the obvious benefits to Spouses, the Employment Readiness Program's Social Networking Classes have been popular with Soldiers as
