Phone Call from a Commander

Phone Call from a Commander Program Transcript



CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: Hello. This is Captain Blanchard, social worker with the mental health office. How can I help you?

LIEUTENANT COLONEL DUNNING: Captain Blanchard, this is Lieutenant Colonel Dunning. I'm the commander of the 243rd Communication Squadron. I'm hoping that you can help me.

CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: Yes ma'am. What can I do for you?

LIEUTENANT COLONEL DUNNING: My unit has been tasked with a short- notice deployment, and I need to put together a class or something for my active duty folks and their families. Is this something that you can help me with?

CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: Yes. I can help with inflammation surrounding a short- term notice deployment. When are you looking to do this class?

LIEUTENANT COLONEL DUNNING: ASAP. Could you come over tomorrow afternoon? I can have the deploying members there at 1500.

CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: What about families?

LIEUTENANT COLONEL DUNNING: I can ask the key spouse to arrange that briefing. Hopefully she can pull in those folks to get the information they need.

CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: Are you able to give me any specifics surrounding the deployed location?

LIEUTENANT COLONEL DUNNING: Not much. Just that the unit has not been tasked in such a way before, so there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the deployment. My first Sergeant told me that is nervous. And I've fielded some calls from some spouses because they're scared. Bring your A game tomorrow. There may be a lot of questions.

CAPTAIN BLANCHARD: I'll bring a couple of my techs with me. The enlisted members may be more comfortable speaking with a peer than speaking with me. I'll also bring some literature for them to take home in case some spouses are unable to attend.
