About the Yellow Ribbon Pre-Deployment Event

The National Guard Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program is a legislatively mandated program designed to provide information, services, referrals, and proactive outreach programs to Service Members and Families of the National Guard and Reserves throughout all phases of the deployment cycle. We accomplish this through Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program events, such as this one being put on Jan 10-11 in Hickory, NC.

If you’re a member of the National Guard, attendance at Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program events is mandatory to ensure you and your Family benefit from the resources available to you. It’s not just about getting through deployment – it’s about reducing the stress of transitioning into and out of each deployment phase, supporting your reintegration, and meeting the unique challenges that National Guard Service Members and Families face by connecting you with your local support community.
