The Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) is a “One Army” program that provides support to surviving family members of Soldiers who died on active duty, regardless of component or manner of death. SOS serves surviving family members of the Army, Army Reserve, Army National Guard, Army National Guard M-Day Soldiers, Troop Patrol Unit Army Reserve, Prisoners of War and Missing in Action (POW/MIA).
Retiree survivors are welcome and can be connected to their local Retirement Services Officer (RSO) when appropriate.
No one is turned away from SOS. Family members of other branches of service may use SOS to receive assistance in connecting to their service’s casualty assistance offices.
The SOS has benefit coordinators, support coordinators and financial counselors. To find out more about Survivor Outreach Services:
