Despite the government shutdown, the Military OneSource website and hotline will remain fully operational. Military OneSource is a Defense Department program that promotes the quality of life of service members and their families by delivering information, referrals, confidential counseling and other services in person, online and by telephone.
Services include, but are not limited to, confidential non-medical counseling, financial counseling, specialty consultations, and health and wellness coaching.
“We recognize the incredible commitment and contributions of our military families,” said Rosemary F. Williams, deputy assistant secretary of defense for military community and family policy. “We are working with the military services to keep as many doors open as possible during the government shutdown, operating within the fiscal guidance passed down from the highest levels of Department of Defense leadership, so families may continue to be empowered and thrive amidst these most recent challenges.”
Military OneSource can be accessed through their website or by calling (800) 342-3647 at any time at no cost to Reserve Marines or their families.
