The SOS PURPOSE is to deliver on the Army's commitment to Families of the fallen. SOS connects you with people who can help you cope with your loss. Many times after you have lost a loved one, there are unresolved issues or questions that may surface months or years after the loss. The Army is dedicated to fulfilling the Family Covenant by providing support to surviving Families for as long as they desire. SOS demonstrates the Army's commitment to Families of the fallen by providing support and standardized services to Active, Reserve, and Army National Guard Families. SOS is a holistic and multi-agency approach to delivering services by providing access at garrisons and communities closest to where Families live.
