Survivor Outreach Services (SOS)
This site and the Gold Star and Next of Kin Lapel Buttons public service announcement series were created by the U.S. Army's Installation Management Command. We reach out to survivors in all 50 states, U.S. territories and overseas through our long-term survivor support program called Survivor Outreach Services.
Survivor Outreach Services provides long-term support and advocacy for families of the fallen. Our support coordinators and financial counselors are dedicated to helping survivors from all eras understand and apply for benefits as well as stay connected to the Army family for as long as they desire.
For all eras and branches of service
Although Survivor Outreach Services is the focus of this resource page, please know that all branches of the Armed Forces are equally committed to taking care of surviving military families. Please contact us, and we will connect you with additional resources that may be available for your branch of service.
