Are family members invited to attend Yellow Ribbon Events?
Yes. Family members are strongly encouraged to attend YRRP events. The events provide useful information and resources for Service Members and their families. The YRRP events that occur during deployment are designed specifically for families.
Is attendance at Yellow Ribbon Events mandatory?
Service Members in the Alabama National Guard are required to attend YRRP events.
How do I find and register for Yellow Ribbon Events?
The Event Planning Tool located on www.yellowribbon.mil, or the Joint Services Support portal located on www.jointservicessupport.org, displays the events scheduled as they are approved. The link to the tool can be found in the left navigation bar under “Find an Event.” Once you locate an event you would like to attend you can either register through the Event Planning Tool (if enabled by the unit) or contact the listed event point of contact for further information and registration.
