About


The strength of our nation is our Army. The strength of our Army is our Soldiers. The strength of our Soldiers is in our Families.

Our mission is to build a strong community and cohesive 1st TSC Family by providing dynamic resources to promote deployment preparedness and engaged resiliency.

Resources

‘Blue Star’ refers to those having a family member in active duty military service. The term dates back to the WWII-era tradition of service flags which displayed a blue star for each family member serving during a period of war.

 

The Army recognizes that the selfless dedication and commitment of Army families directly contributes to the readiness of our Soldiers. Army Families endure unique challenges, often multiple separations and relocations throughout their Soldier’s Army lifecycle.

 

1st TSC partners with Fort Knox to provide several local resources for spouses of deployed soldiers.

 

The Army has established a network of programs and services to improve Soldier and Family readiness. Military OneSource also provides a wealth of information and resources for military families on topics ranging from parenting and education, to benefits, taxes, and employment. We encourage you to explore the resources linked on this page as you build your family's readiness for the challenges of active duty service and deployments.

Whether you're new to military life or have been a part of our extended military family for years, you know that moving can be an adventure. The Family Readiness Group is here to help you get rooted in your new 1st TSC community. We strive to provide the right information and helpful resources for an easier adjustment period.

 

 

For military spouses exploring new careers, there are many useful resources available online. Local hiring fairs frequently focus on career opportunities for military spouses and retiring or transitioning service members.

 

 

For parents, providing the best possible education for your children is always a priority. Should you need assistance during your child’s transition into a new school, contact the School Support Services office and speak to a School Liaison Officer.

 

 

As you settle in, you may find yourself looking for ways to connect with your community or spend your free time. There are countless recreational events & activities on base, in Radcliff, and in our neighboring cities - no matter what your interests.

Gold Star parents, spouses, and families will always be a part of our 1st TSC family. We recognize that no one has given more to our nation than the families of the fallen.

 

The Army remains dedicated to providing ongoing support to ‘Gold Star Families,’ to recognize their courage and sacrifice and to honor their loved one's legacy. Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s Day is recognized on the last Sunday of September and Gold Star Spouses Day occurs annually on April 5.

 

Army Survivor Outreach Services offers resources that include supportive counseling, financial education, benefits coordination, and support groups. Additional nonprofit and non-governmental organizations offer services that complement the Army's continuum of support for Gold Star Families.
