The 147th Army Band Family Readiness Group (FRG) is an organization of family members, volunteers and soldiers belonging to the unit that together, provide an avenue of mutual support, assistance, and a network of communication among the family members, the chain of command, and community resources. The importance of having an active, functional unit FRG cannot be over emphasized. We need our families to be informed, connected and educated.

As a family member of a National Guard soldier, there are numerous resources available to you.

If you would like to volunteer in our Family Readiness Group, please email SGT Mandie Wittmeier at: We’re always looking for more volunteers to help with the Family Readiness Group!
