Start here  to begin your roadmap to Reintegration
The Oklahoma National Guard has pioneered a program in hopes of changing how Soldiers and Airmen are reintegrated back to their communities. Called Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, the program is named as a reminder that the support of Soldiers cannot end when they return from deployment and the yellow ribbons are untied. Please register at Guardfamily.org to get started with the Reintegration process, if you have difficulty please use our Guardfamily.org reference sheet as a handy guide.
