Service members and their families undergo a very unique set of challenges. Deployments and family relocations can be very stressful for a family. These issues are compounded when a divorce or separation takes place.
The OurFamilyWizard website can provide military families a way to stay in contact, share information and keep everyone involved. Whether stationed at home or abroad, with just an Internet connection, a parent can see what is going on in their family’s daily life. Functions like video chat and other helpful tools can help keep you connected with your child from thousands of miles away.
In the case of a divorced or separated parenting situation, the site gives parents unparalleled access to family information, which makes it much easier to plan your leave and holiday. In addition, the site will give you the ability to stay on top of medical, school and other information that could otherwise be missed. Being able to keep track of the various aspects of day to day life for your family is an invaluable tool, especially for those that can’t be there physically to take part in the activities of their kids. We already have service member families using the site from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.
To show our support for the Armed Forces we have decided to provide OurFamilyWizard subscriptions at a greatly reduced rate of cost to military families. If you OR your former spouse are either active duty or a veteran, you pay for one parent subscription and you will get the second at no cost.
To be eligible, you must fill out the fields below and return this form with a completed DD-214 report or active duty members can send us a copy of their current orders or another form of documentation to demonstrate your military status: DD-214: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/dd-214.html
You will need to download and return the account application before getting your account established to receive the discount which is not offered retroactively:
Here is a testimonial from one of our subscribers:
"My daughter-in law and my son are in the US Navy. My wife and I are taking care of my 8-month-old grandson while the kids serve our country. We use My Family Wizard as a vehicle to store my grandson’s vital medical records and to create a journal of his "first events" in his life. My daughter in-law is in the Persian Gulf aboard the USS Milius on deployment, my son has just gotten out of the Navy after a four-year stint. This website gives us all the ability to communicate my grandsons life by just logging on. God bless you."
