The Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is a Department of Defense (DoD) effort helping National Guard and Reserve service members and their families connect with local resources before, during, and after deployments. Service members and their families attend Yellow Ribbon events, where they access information on health care, education and training opportunities, financial services, and legal benefits. The DoD works in conjunction with federal partners, including the Small Business Administration and Departments of Labor and Veterans Affairs, to provide up-to-date and relevant information to National Guard and Reserve service members and their families.
YRRP is intended to assist you at any stage: pre-deployment, deployment, demobilization, reintegration, and beyond. Events are designed to address the unique needs and challenges of National Guard and Reserve members and their families during the deployment cycle. It connects the geographically dispersed population of the Guard and Reserve with local services and resources providing support where it's needed most; closest to home.
