Mission: The Soldier for Life – Transition Assistance Program (SFL-TAP) formerly The Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP). The mission of the SFL-TAP is to deliver a world-class transition program for America’s Army that empowers members to make informed career decisions that enhances lives, communities and our nation.
This program enables Soldiers to capitalize on their Army experience and skills. Soldiers make informed decisions using transition program services and re-enlistment may be a viable option. It is all about making informed decisions – setting Soldiers up for success.
Soldiers leaving the Army must complete the Mandatory Pre-Separation Counseling Checklist (DD Form 2648) no later than 12 months from their separation date. New mandated Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) Act training requirements must be completed prior to separation. Please see VOW Checklist and Transition “Not Later than” Timeline on Resources link in the left menu. The Individual Transition Plan Checklist (DD Form 2958) is required prior to receiving separation orders. Once Soldiers are eligible, it is recommended to begin transition program services as early as possible.
