This month’s focus in the March FAC Newsletter is on deployment as we have units that have left, are leaving, and are preparing to leave. Please distribute as you deem appropriate, and if you have any questions or if I can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This weekend the military Family Assistance Center (FAC) contacted PBYR with a request for service. A service member’s father is in an AZ hospice. He is very ill and will likely die in several days. The service member would like to see his father and bring 4 family members to AZ, however does not have the funds. The service member contacted the FAC, the airline , the Red Cross and the American Legion . The cost for the flight is $1,760.
PBYR agreed to provide an emergency grant of $880.00 to assist this family. We appreciate the FAC for bringing this situation to our attention as we want to support this military family in their time of need.
