WASHINGTON, Aug. 11, 2010 – A new American Forces Press Service Web special, "Focus on Family: Know Before You Go"  is highlighting how military families prepare for and deal with deployments.

The special features a variety of stories, from single dads preparing to deploy to dual-military couples who will be deploying together. It also includes links to helpful information, including service-specific deployment resources.

The goal of the special is to help people "know before you go," and we hope you find it useful.

We'd also love to hear from you. If you have some tips that have helped your family prepare for or handle a deployment, don't hesitate to write in.
