  2. 2. Director’s Cut Welcome to our Spring Edition of Family Times: Here we are in spring time with the First Annual Army and Air Military and Family Appreciation Day this Saturday at McEntire Joint National Guard Base. This will be a spectacular event for the entire family. There will be concerts by Coastal Breeze, Bodega Roja and more. There will also be plenty of activities for kids. The Department of Natural Resources is bringing their Outdoor Heritage Mobile Education Trailer which is a hunting and fishing simulator. This will be the largest Family Day the South Carolina National Guard has ever produced and the weather is supposed to be great. You will see an advertisement later inthis issue for more information. Registration is now open for our Annual Youth Camp. This is a great opportunity for your kidsfrom ages 10 to 17. We are going to Camp Bob Cooper again this year on beautiful Lake Marion. It runsfrom July 24th - 30th. It’s only $150 for the whole week with many activities including parasailing. It’s agreat time for our kids to interact with each other and share the experiences of being in the NationalGuard Family. Applications are available on our web page at www.scguard.army.mil . Then go toResources/Family Programs/Youth Camp. All of you wonderful Family Readiness Group volunteers out there are the backbone of FamilyPrograms and we want to tell your stories. If you are having any fund raisers or any other events youwould like for us to publicize, please contact Specialist Bonita Patrick at 803-806-4400. If anyone out there has any old or broken cell phones, please get them to any Family Programsstaff. We can turn them in for calling cards that we can send to deployed Soldiers and Airmen. It does notmatter what kind of shape the phones are in. It saddens me to tell you that we have lost three members of our Family Programs Team. MikeBower, our Senior Family Readiness Support Assistant has moved to another career opportunity. JasonMarsh, a member of our Yellow Ribbon Team, has also moved, starting his own business. And last, butcertainly not least, Tina Brown, one of our great Military and Family Life Consultants, has accepted aposition with the Veterans Administration in Richmond, VA to be closer to her family. We wish all ofthem nothing but the best of luck for the future and they will be missed terribly. Please let us know what is going on in your unit, your family and your community. We are all inthis together and together we are stronger. May God bless all of you.Debbie McNameeState Family Programs Director 2

  4. 4. News From Above As a Chaplain Candidate, it is sometimes overwhelming just to hear all of the challenges our Soldiers arefacing. Our Soldiers are all individuals who have recognized the necessity of putting on the uniform, training,preparing, maintaining readiness, and spending long periods of time away from home in the name of our Nation’ssecurity and liberty. Our Soldiers act with urgency and an awareness of the duty they have—and they volunteer allthe more to serve for the good of the Unit, the State, and the Nation. However, this service frequently takes its toll onthe personal lives of our Soldiers and their Families. ―Resiliency‖ in our Soldiers’ spiritual and mental life is the goal; but what does that look like? Take twohypothetical Soldiers. Say, for example, both are in the same unit, both are on the same patrol in Afghanistan, andboth are involved in the same roadside blast. One Soldier returns home and seeks to process what he has beenthrough. He monitors his thoughts, behaviors, and physical responses. He is patient. It’s not always easy, but overtime, he comes through a more well-balanced individual than before the deployment. He even comes to see the trialsand valleys he has gone through as a blessing in disguise. As the old hymn says: God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform; He plants His footsteps in the sea And rides upon the storm. Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take; The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy and shall break In blessings on your head. The other Soldier is not so patient. He returns home and withdraws from any help available. He wants thestress he feels to be gone. He becomes frustrated, and that leads to all kinds of other personal challenges—whichonly compound the problem. This is nothing more than an overly-simplified analogy. Nevertheless, your Chaplains are working before,during, and after deployments to give that second Soldier the resources and tools he needs to be more like that firstSoldier. Your Chaplains are working before, during, and after deployments with Families to foster understandingand equip people to be able to work through these challenges. The Guard is a Family. We want to bear one another’sburdens, and we rush to one another’s aid. Your Chaplains are privileged to serve such extraordinary Soldiers andFamilies, and we are continually seeking how to best provide Comprehensive Soldier Care.By: 2LT Blake T Law, Chaplain Candidate CH (2LT) Cecil Costadani SFC Brandon Brown Chaplain Chaplain Assistant (803) 806-1799 (803) 806-2247 4

  7. 7. Family to Family Deployment is no easy task to endure when it comes to leaving behind loved ones. We asSoldiers sacrifice missing birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and even the births of our ownchildren, just to name a few, to serve our country. In this section we honor the words of Soldiersthat experience deployment and the affect it had on their family, but still find encouraging words tosay to other South Carolina National Guardsmen and service members and the work we do under theumbrella of Family programs in relation to Readiness, Resiliency, and Reintegration. We hope thatyou find you are not alone in whatever situation you endure but know that there is help and we, theSouth Carolina National Guard Family Programs Family, are here to faithfully serve those Familiesthat have pledged to make the ultimate sacrifice. Soldiers. Veterans. Families In this edition we honor: The Sims Family The biggest thing that I went through while on this deployment was the pregnancy of my third and final son!!! My third son, whose name is Brennan, is here because of the generous donation of Lowes Home Improvement. If you can recall, Lowes donated $25,000 to get us home for Christmas. While home for Christmas my wife and I took full advantage of the time we had together. We (1222 Eng Co) left on the 1st of January 2010 to head back to Ft. McCoy to finish the remaining training we had left. The 21st of January was a big day for me. Not only did I find out that we would depart that afternoon for Afghanistan, but I also found out my wife was pregnant. After finding this out, I couldnt help but to sit back and laugh at the Lowes Home Improvement slogan, "Lets build something together". Therefore, I tell everybody that my wife and I take that saying to heart. After finding out that she was pregnant, me being gone was a big concern for me. My wife attended a FRG meeting, and it was then I knew that everything was going to be okay. It helped me realize, as far as the support, I did not have to worry. The support and peace of mind was overwhelming and the gratitude we feel, I cannot even begin to put it in words. There was a lot of support from different organizations as well. The main thing that I can tell somebody that is getting ready to deploy is to stay focused on the mission at hand and tell their significant other to go to the FRG meetings, take full advantage of the services that are available through Family Programs and Yellow Ribbon and get involved as much as possible. This will make the time fly by for both parties. Yours in Service, The Sims Family 7

  10. 10. OMG!...OMK! OMK : Family Resiliency RetreatsOMK Since 2008 SC Operation Military Kids has supported seven Family Resiliency Retreats, These retreats are designed specifically for military families that have or have had a family member deployed . Family Retreats have hosted grandparents raising grandchildren while their single parent son or daughter is deployed., OIF and OEF military members and their families Operation: and Wounded Warriors and their families.. Retreats are typically held in a tranquil Military Kids mountain or refreshing beach setting. Though some resiliency skills trainings are held, families are given plenty of opportunity to participate in ―family‖ activities Family Resiliency of their choosing…. like making Ice cream sundaes. Retreats Ingredients of Resiliency: 7 Crucial Cs Competence—Ability to know how to effectively handle situations Confidence—Solid beliefs In one’s abilities Connection— Close times to family, friends, school, work, and community that produce strong values and prevent self destructive behavior Character— Fundamental sense of right and wrong to ensure youth/(everyone) is prepared to make wise choices, contribute to the world, and function as stable adults. Contribution—When youth (anyone) realizes the world is a better place because they are in it and because of their contribution to it. Coping—A wide repertoire of positive, adaptive coping strategies Control— When youth (a person) realize they can control the outcomes of their decisions and actions. (From: Dr. Ken Ginsburg in RSG! OMK Training and Resource Manual, 8th Edition) Resiliency: The capacity to rise above adversity and to forge lasting strengths in the struggle. It is the means by which children and adults can rebound from hardship and emerge as strong, healthy individuals, able to lead gratifying lives, albeit with some scars to show for their experiences.

  11. 11. Yellow Ribbon Team -Army Soldiers returning from combat face unique challenges when they return home andtry to reintegrate into society. Things for them can never be the same, and much of whatthey’ve seen will stay with them forever. Families, and especially children, are also affectedby the return of the Soldier. While it is wonderful to have our Soldiers home, learning howwe can help make their adjustment easier is important. On Thursday February 22, 2011 atthe Rock Hill Hall Chambers, a Soldier Reintegration Forum was sponsored by the City ofRock Hill. It was an opportunity for people to learn how to help our Soldiers feel like theyare really home. The forum will also be rebroadcast on City of Rock Hill channel 19 andCN2 TV. You can visit www.rockhillontv.com to view the current program schedule. While using a slide presentation, the panel’s focus emphasized personalexperiences and affects on children and Soldiers in the workforce. While all servicemembers face challenges, the National Guard and Reserves face additional challengesbecause generally they do not live near military facilities or have community supports inplace. There are approximately 800 military children in the Rock Hill area. Deploymentaffects even the very young children. In addition to concern for their absent loved one, Terry O’Connorchildren must cope with the stress that the remaining parent will naturally experience. Yellow Ribbon Coordinator Part of the discussion centered on employers as well. Going to work as a civilian 803-667-2075can be challenging after a tour of duty in a combat zone. Returning Veterans may rely onbattle field skills that do not necessarily fit with the civilian way of doing business. In theend, although there may be difficulties – they can be overcome and it is plain to see that theCity of Rock Hill is setting up that type of environment. Please remember these Servicemembers are the best trained in the world and their skill level in management, leadership,problem solving and resolution are immeasurable. When an employer looks at the Veteran,he can appreciate a person whose values are honesty, integrity, loyalty, duty, respect,personal courage and selfless service. This was the second event of this type by City of Rock Hill. This is probably themost far reaching and innovative approach to reaching Soldiers and families in SouthCarolina. Hats off to the City of Rock Hill. Many thanks to Max Watson and Lynn Garris,City of Rock Hill Public Affairs, for their tremendous help. We were very appreciative that SSG DeAnna Bizettethe Assistant City Manager, Mr Jerry Shapiro, could attend as well. Yellow Ribbon NCOICSoldiers. Veterans.

  12. 12. Survivor Outreach Services S IF YOU NEED HELP… urvivor Outreach Services (SOS) has been in effect for the SCARNG since 3 Aug 2009. Survivor Outreach Services is designed to keep our Survivors connected to the Army Family for as long as they desire. We do this by holding support groups, grief workshops, and annual Christmas events for our Survivors. We also assist Survivors with applying for benefits through the VA such as; grants, head stones, educational benefits and other services. Survivor Outreach Services utilizes other programs within Family Programs to make our events successful, such as the Military Family Life Consultants. These licensed professionals help facilitate our trainings and offer counseling support as needed. SOS has accomplished a very time consuming task since January 2011. We have identified the number of survivors in each county to better assess the needs of our Survivors statewide. After collecting this data, we have developed a plan to conduct grief workshops in 4 other key areas around the state: Spartanburg, Myrtle Beach, Florence, and Charleston. This minimizes travel for our Survivors to Columbia in order to get to these support groups. Working together- Attending the Family Programs semi-annual briefing allowed us to network with unfamiliar organization to better improve SOS by getting the word out on our services. Survivor Outreach Service Coordinators will begin to attend the FRG leader trainings and Retiree Briefings to explain the services that SOS offers. We are excited about the plans we have put in place to better services the Survivors in the State of South Carolina. The National Guard SOS Coordinators have established a great network with our SOS counterparts serving the Active and Reserve component Survivors. We host our events as a team to better service all survivors in each of the Army components. With that said, SOS is growing and the feedback from our Survivors are being heard. We strive to make this program as beneficial as possible for the Survivors we serve and we will continue to keep our Families connected to the Army Family for as long as they desire.“Never Forgotten...Never Alone” Ms. Elizabeth Carney Mrs. Ashley Young 12 SOS Coordinator SOS Coordinator 803-806-1565 803-806-2959
