Contact Eisenhower's FRG at

A Family Readiness Group (FRG) is a command organization that may operate on Department of Defense installations.  Members typically include spouses, but may also include parents, grandparents, children and fiance(e)s.

The purpose of a FRG is to plan and conduct social, informational, care-taking, and morale building activities that will increase family readiness and enable the total Navy family to meet the challenges of the mission and military lifestyle.

As Navy families, we are truly blessed to have such strong support teams when our Sailors are home and away.

Eisenhower's FRG Care Line helps facilitate timely dissemination of command information and provides an alternate means of communicating with the CVN 69 FRG, Command Ombudsman and provides a resource for newly reporting Sailors and their families.

IKE's FRG officers are: FRG President - Melissa; FRG Vice President - Kristy; FRG Treasurer - Melanie; FRG Secretary - Brianne. 


Family and friends can get free packaging materials - The USPS has a program for military family members and friends to supply them with packaging materials to send packages to troop overseas, Sailors on ships, etc.

Call 1-800-610-8734 and select option #1, then #1 again. Ask for the "Military Pack."  They will send you 8 boxes, tape, packaging materials and labels.  They will give you an ID number so that when your supply runs low, you can call and they'll send more supplies.

Materials take four to 10 days to receive.  For more information, visit the USPS website.
