6/28/2010 - JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. -- We all have a responsibility to ensure we are properly trained to do the mission, and it is equally as important to take care of our dependents.

Air Force Instruction 36-2908, Family Care Plans, states service members are required to have a Family Care Plan established if the member is:

· Married military to military with dependents
· Single military with dependents
· Military with dependents who have special needs

This plan must be documented on Air Force Form 357. The plan should be reviewed and certified annually or when changes occur.

Read AFI 36-2908 for further guidance on Family Care Plans, because taking care of our dependents is just as important as taking care of the mission.
