Active duty service members and their families are welcomed to apply for an Operation at Ease Weekend. Guests can come from any branch and location.
First priority will be those personnel separated from their families and recently deployed to a combat zone or other area where there is reasonable expectations of hostile combat operations. Second priority will be those personnel returning from an unaccompanied tour. All other requests will be considered if vacancies are available.
Thank you to all the deserving families that applied for Operation at Ease 2023. Our family scheduler is working to schedule visits starting with the individuals who were deployed the longest and working down. We have closed the applications for 2023. Applications for 2024 will open mid-January 2024 for the summer of 2024
When the applications open, you apply on-line then:
- One of our OAE volunteers will contact the supervisor you list.
- Once that is successfully completed, your application will be forwarded to our Family Coordinator who will reach out to you to discuss options for dates that are available.
- Scheduling is a combination of first applications received and priority given to those who have been separated from their family.
- Once scheduled, you will receive more detailed information 2-3 weeks before your arrival date.
