No spouse wants their SM to deploy, but if orders arrive, here is a great idea for everyone to stay engaged and for children to better grasp the length of time process.

Deployments are hard. End of sentence.

They are hard when you are left alone to take care of the household responsibilities. They are hard when you are feeling lonely not having your person around every night.

And they’re even harder on the children. Especially when they don’t understand why their parent isn’t able to tuck them in at night, or attend their games, or just be around to hear a funny story.

Today, I’m taking a minute to be grateful for all that we have gotten through as a family.

For every missed phone call, lost letters/packages, and special moments spent apart, we still got through it all.

Here’s a deployment wall that we created for a deployment in 2017 after my 4th child was born. We enjoyed eating an M&M each day that passed by, and pulling the chain off each week to see the note that was written on it.

We got by, day by day, as we always do…

Hello TRICARE beneficiaries!

We collaborated with the Armed Services YMCA El Paso to open a children’s waiting room for TRICARE beneficiaries in the rank of E-6 and below, who may need someone to watch their children during their appointments.

The ASYMCA Children’s Waiting Room (CWR) is located in the Patient Experience office, on the first floor of the East Clinic at our main campus. The CWR will provide a designated play space for children and families who cannot accompany their parent or sibling during their medical appointments at WBAMC.

WBAMC and ASYMCA will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 1, at 11:30 a.m. on the first floor of the East Clinic, main campus, to commemorate this historic event for the hospital and its beneficiaries. If attending, you must wear a mask.

The CWR will open for business on September 1, 2022, and operate Monday through Thursday at 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Since the CWR is operated by the ASYMCA, they will provide trained childcare staff to care for the children during its hours of operation.

Eligible families who wish to use the CWR, can stop by the Patient Experience office at WBAMC to register. Registration is a one-time event and can be completed during the initial visit. Registration will begin on August 29, 2022. Eligible beneficiaries can visit our website at https://william-beaumont.tricare.mil/Patient-Resources/Child-Care-Waiting-Area or call 915-742-0975 to learn more
