The Army's Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR) initiative provides a wide variety of programs, services and activities that are meant to enhance the lives of soldiers and their families. For example, servicemembers, their spouses and children can participate in recreational activities, arts and crafts, book clubs or attend a self-improvement class—and that's just touching the surface of all that the FMWR has to offer.

Most of the major Army posts have a FMWR; however, each installation is unique in regards to what's offered to soldiers and their families. For example, most of the installations have a library and recreational facilities, but not all of the posts have arts and crafts facilities. Some libraries have book clubs and discussion groups whereas others do not, and so forth. Regardless of what's offered, one thing's for certain: adults and kids have a lot to choose from.

To gain a full understanding of what's available at your FMWR and to keep up to date with all of their events and activities (and there are many), please select your Army post from the following list, which is organized by state (for those stationed within the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico) and by country for those who are stationed overseas.
