Canadian Space Detachment Vandenberg
Welcome to OUTCAN
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 Zoom) 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 MFS(US) and your MFSC is to ensure you have the knowledge needed for a rewarding and positive OUTCAN experience.
