ACAP helps Soldiers plan for success

The Army Career Alumni Program (ACAP) at Fort McCoy is available to help prepare transitioning Soldiers for success in their future careers.

Transition Assistance Program (TAP) workshops, job-assistance seminars and counseling are some of the resources that ACAP uses to help soon-to-be veterans find and land the best jobs. Companies are hiring, and they are looking for veteran experience. ACAP can provide assistance in helping veterans put their best foot forward right into an employer’s doorway!

ACAP also provides services, such as pre-separation briefings, education and training information and referrals that are all designed to help veterans transition or readjust to the civilian work force. 

Leaders can help by encouraging transitioning Soldiers to take advantage of the transition planning services offered by the ACAP program.

Soldiers, both U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard, who have completed 180 days of active duty, and, for up to six months following their REFRAD (release from active duty), are eligible to receive transition assistance information.

Soldiers, who are Active Guard/Reserve or Active Component within two years of eligibility for retirement or within one year of separation, are eligible to receive transition assistance information.

Eligible Soldiers are encouraged to watch for upcoming details on the next Department of Labor-sponsored TAP workshop to be held at Fort McCoy in November. Details of that workshop will be announced soon.

For more details on how the Fort McCoy ACAP office can assist, call Mitzi Hinton at (608) 388-7941 or stop by the Soldier Readiness Center, building 2643, room 106B.
