For the kiddo's pillow

Leticia Gonzalez, Airman and Family Readiness Center Director for the 433rd Airlift Wing, snaps a photo of Master Sgt. Ramon Munoz, 26th Aerial Port Squadron cargo supervisor, during a Yellow Ribbon Reintegration pre-deployment seminar held Aug. 2, 2009 inside the headquarter building for the 26th Aerial Port Squadron. The photos will be imprinted on a pillow case and given to their young dependants. The pillowcase with the image of a parent is designed to help a child cope with the separation from a parent or parents during a deployment. The Yellow Ribbon Program is designed to help service members and families prepare for many of the challenges before, during and after a deployment. Representatives from more than a dozen organizations such as the Red Cross, the 433rd Airlift Wing legal office and the Employment Support for Guard and Reserve (ESGR) participated in the pre-deployment event. The representatives presented information on deployment-related matters such as physical separation from loved ones, care or guardianship of dependants, family and individual counseling, employment rights and legal matters such as wills and powers of attorney documents.(U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Luis Loza Gutierrez) For more information about the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program click on the following link:
