Deployment to Afghanistan for Marines and sailors stationed in Jacksonville, NC is continual. The transition back to home life can be both difficult and stressful. The purpose of this project is to increase awareness of the dynamics of reintegration of military members and their families after deployment. Based on questionnaires sent to local churches, military families, observations, and journaling, the thesis project validated a need for support. The thesis project produced a resource guide teaching pastors stressors associated with reintegration. The summary and conclusion will address behavioral and social changes by group participants.
