Members will attend an event 90-days prior to deployment, and again upon return at the 30, 60 and 90-day points to help member reintegrate with family and back into civilian life. More than 300 personnel, from 12 military installations in the Northeast Region, attended the June event. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Master Sgt. Shannon Hughes)
