  • 4. Where do I go.. When I need Support? With so many resources out there, sometimes its confusing to know where to start. Heres an illustration that might offer some guidance in those times of confusion. Imagine that you are going to the tool store in need of a tool or tools to build your support structure. You walk through the doors and are greeted byThe Representative at the Door This is typically the first person that you see when youenter a store for help. They have a good general idea of where all of the tools are and canpoint you in the right direction. This person would be a good starting point in your searchfor tools that you need to build your support structure. This person is like your (FamilyReadiness Group) FRG Leader. The Customer Service Agent But sometimes the tools that you will need are so specific that it stumps that Sales Person. So, they would typically send you to the Customer Service Agent who typically knows the store in a little more detail and who would be able to give you very specific guidance. This person is your (Family Readiness Support Assistant) FRSA.The Specialist Once you know where to go to find the tools, there are timeswhen you realize that you might need to talk with someone who can hear theproblem and give you specific advice on which tools youll need, how to build yoursupport structure, and whether or not it is a project that is realistically manageable.This person is your (Military Family Life Consultant) MFLC.The Contractor There are times when the specialist recommends that you get witha contractor because the project is too big. The contractor is Behavioral Health. The Trusted Friend Sometimes when we approach projects that are big and unfamiliar we can find comfort in bringing along a trusted friend who has proven themselves to be supportive and knowledgeable in these difficult times so that we dont have to embrace them alone. In the absence of a trusted friend, the Chaplain is a good person to bring along.Knighthawk FRSA: Kelley Arnold, Phone: 315-774-1373 Email: kelley.m.arnold2.civ@mail.milMFLC: Joan Upole, Phone: 315-212-6919, Email: mflc.ftdrum.av@gmail.comKnighthawk Chaplain: CH (CPT) Daniel Werho, Phone: 315-405-6810 Email:
