Taking cover with the right health coverage

(At right) Susana Estrada-Berg, TRICARE beneficiary service representative, explains to Master Sgt. Rolando Rodriguez, 26th Aerial Port Squadron NCO in-charge of information control, the different types of health care plans available to servicemembers and their dependants before, during and after a deployment. Representitives from more than a dozen on and off-base organizations such as the Red Cross, the 433rd Airlift Wing legal office and the Employment Support for Guard and Reserve (ESGR) participated in a Yellow Ribbon Pre-deployment seminar, which took place Aug. 2, 2009 at the 26th Aerial Port Squadron Headquarters in San Antonio, Texas. 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 power of attorney. The Yellow Ribbon Program is designed to help servicemembers and their families prepare for many of the challenges that may be encountered before, during and after a deployment.
