In March, Amy Majerle and I began working with the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) in the new “Family Transitions” concentration area. We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new Facebook page for professionals working with military families to build resilience and navigate life cycle transitions. To kick things off, the Facebook page is featuring the diary of an Air Force couple willing to share experiences from their first 30 days living together again after deployment. Today marks day 10 of the diary.
In the coming weeks, our team will be developing new educational tools and information-sharing platforms for professionals assisting military families as part of our collaboration with the Department of Defense, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and eXtension. In the meantime, check out the Facebook page and walk in the shoes of a military family navigating the return of a family member after deployment: MFLN Family Transitions.
