The Indiana National Guard’s Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program is a legislatively mandated, comprehensive program that provides a continuum of support to service members and their families throughout all phases of the deployment cycle to help reduce stressors and challenges created by deployment.
We provide you with the information, services, referrals and proactive outreach programs that you need to connect you with your local support community through our office and through events we hold across Indiana. If you’re a member of the National Guard, attendance at a Yellow Ribbon program event is mandatory to ensure you and your family benefit from the resources available to you. Our job is to be here for you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further assistance. Remember that YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO US!
