"Our great military families have sacrificed so much for our nation, through multiple moves, schools, combat tours. Our families sacrifice more than most people will ever know, … and our children pay the biggest bill of all."
-General Mark Milley, USA, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Why READiness365?

Military members and their families experience a wide range of service-related separations including deployments, training commitments, and irregular work hours. These factors and increased military operations since the events of 9/11 mean service members and their families are under constant stress. This continuous cycle of upheaval can lead to increased anxiety, behavioral problems, and academic difficulties for military children. The cumulative effects contribute to a reduction in military family readiness. Tools to address these factors must be readily accessible to military families.

For Military Families, READiness365 Will:

Promote DAILY READING, which strengthens military children’s literacy skills and educational development. 90% of families reported an increase in a child’s love of reading since watching UTR video-recordings.

The more reading ready our military families are, the stronger our nation is today and tomorrow.

READiness365 is United Through Reading’s campaign to bolster military family readiness for all service-related separations by maintaining essential family bonds and building literacy skills through digital storytime. By increasing access to and use of our mobile reading App, while also building access and usage to our Story Stations around the world, we can make military families reading ready.
