As time goes on...more and more Post, District,and Department Vice Commander resources will become available on the page
Each Division and District Commander is given objectives during their Orientation Session to complete by a specified time. To help them track individual Post status they also have a spreadsheet.
One of the District Commander objectives is to visit each Post in their District annually and to evaluate the activities within the post...it is NOT an inspection...using the form below.
(Any percentage over 100% shows Growth, whereas any Percentage under 100% shows Decline)
Additionally, each Department Vice Commander and District Commander is responsible for having a local post participate in a Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) event in their area. If attending any of these events please contact this Department, Sherri Mayberry, 615-391-5088 prior to the registration date. The events schedule follows.
YELLOW RIBBON REINTERGRATION PROGRAM
What is YRRP? The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is a DoD-wide effort to promote the well-being of National Guard and Reserve members, their families and communities, by connecting them with resources throughout the deployment cycle. Through YRRP events, Service members and loved ones connect with local resources before, during, and after deployments. Reintegration during post-deployment is a critical time for members of the Guard and Reserve, as they often live far from military installations and members of their units. Commanders and leaders play a critical role in assuring that Reserve Service members and their families attend YRRP events where they can access information on health care, education/training opportunities, financial, and legal benefits. We work in conjunction with federal partners, including the Small Business Administration and Departments of Labor and Veterans Affairs, to provide up-to-date and relevant information to the members of the all-volunteer force and their families.
The 117th MP BN will conduct their Post- Deployment Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) Event on 5-6 August 2017. This 2-day event will be conducted at:
Music City Sheraton
777 McGavock Pike
Nashville, TN 37214
