Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s philosophy is “Soldiers are entitled to the same quality of life as is afforded the society they are pledged to defend.  Keeping an Army ready to fight and win takes more than hard work and training.  Soldiers need a balance of work and play.  The Family and MWR mission is to create and maintain “First Choice” MWR products and services for America’s Army, essential to a ready, self-reliant force.”
