Soldier is Overseas, But Family is in the U.S.
Soldiers who report for duty at an overseas location before they have obtained authorization for accompanied Family travel must ensure that Family members complete the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) screening process. For example, a Soldier may have proceeded directly from a training school where their Family members did not live with them. It is likely that the Family is located in a community that is not near an Army installation.
If this is the case, the Soldier must take on the role of advocate and ensure each Family member completes the EFMP screening process by following the steps shown below. Select each step for more information.
