"I came in thinking we would just through PowerPoints. The group discussions help more than PowerPoint ever could. I liked how they did not try to cram a bunch of information into us that we have been trained on before. I appreciated the timeline and doing a lot more with a lot less. It did not feel like an everyday Air Force briefing."
"i've been to DTC a few times before, the difference is that every deployment is different, positions throughout the military change and responsibilities tend to increase. DTC does a great job of analyzing the target audience whether at the Operation, Tactical, or Strategic level enables the subjects to reflect how each category applies to each echelon."
"Very engaging staff without being intrusive. Great discussions that I believe allow me to recognize green and red aspects of CAF as I reintegrate. First DTC after 8 deployments in the AF. This would have been helpful after the first."
"The overall experience for me was necessary... the need to decompress as relax before returning home was extremely needed... I am grateful for the opportunity."
"Really enjoyed the facilitators. Both were very down to earth and made me comfortable during group sessions. Truly provided a safe space. Also enjoyed the DTC facility."
The U.S. Air Force Deployment Transition Center at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, operates a continuing world-class organization, en route to redeployers' home station. The program provides critical reintegration skills and decompression opportunities.
