Welcome to the US and welcome to Canadian Space Detachment Vandenberg! Being attached to this DET is unique as we have members and families located in 8 different geographic locations! Our community spreads from Clear, Alaska, to Thule, Greenland and in between we have members and families in Beale, CA, Vandenberg, CA, Colorado Springs, CO, Denver, CO, Cavalier, ND, and Cape Cod, MA.
This 31 member DET is supported by your Military Family Services Coordinator (MFSC), based out of Vandenberg, California with MFS support on the ground in Colorado and additional support and programming provided from MFSUS on a National level. Your MFSC is dedicated to ensuring you feel supported at all times during your OUTCAN posting, providing information and referrals as well as virtual support (i.e. via WebEx) and one on one conversations via phone or in person, so you have someone there to answer your questions, feel connected to and lean on when times might be challenging. The goal of MFSUS and your MFSC is to ensure you have the knowledge needed for a rewarding and positive OUTCAN experience.
Military Family Services U.S. (MFSUS), a division of Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services, welcomes you to California. There are over 650 Canadian Armed Forces families across 37 states. Many of these families are stationed at U.S. bases as a part of a larger Canadian Detachment. However, there are some of you who are the only Canadian families in a particular location.
MFSUS knows you are out there and we want to provide you with as many opportunities to stay connected with other Canadian families living in the United States as possible, as well as keeping you informed on important topics and supported in your location.
National supports, services, events and information can be found in the top navigation toolbar. And while there may not be MFSUS staff posted in your specific location, an MFS Coordinator is available to you and your family as your MFS point of contact for information and referral during your OUTCAN posting.
