Readiness & Deployment Support
Readiness & Deployment Support at Camp Pendleton is located at the Mainside Marine & Family Program HQ
Readiness and Deployment Support Trainers (RDST) at Camp Pendleton provide a variety of readiness education and deployment support. Offering classes, workshops and briefs that discuss a variety of readiness education and deployment support issues defines the role of this program. The “Warrior Kids” series provides support and encouragement to kids ages 5-12 throughout the entire deployment cycle (pre, mid, and return). The “Warrior Teen” workshop is geared toward teens ages 13-18, and focuses on the challenges that are unique to that age group when a parent deploys. Lastly, the “Strong Marine Couples” reintegration workshop, addresses the ups and downs of reuniting in a relaxed environment.
Family Readiness Officers or members of a Command Team in need of a unit-specific brief or workshop may contact the RDST office at (760) 763-1337.
