Herman was chosen as the Fort McCoy representative because he has experience in several areas: as a Soldier, a retiree, a civilian employee, and as the parent of a Soldier. Herman, who also has been an active participant in the past three Fort McCoy AFAP conferences, was assigned as a delegate in the employment work group. He plans to continue his involvement in the Fort McCoy AFAP process.

“Attending the DA AFAP conference allowed me to participate in the process from beginning to end, as well as enabling me to see the extensive support Army leadership directs toward the AFAP,” Herman said.

It is important for all installations to be represented at the higher-level AFAP conferences, he said.

Bringing representatives from all locations together makes for a broad-based conference personifying many backgrounds and gives every installation a voice in the process.
