The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) is a mechanism for Soldiers, retirees, DA civilians and their family members to identify quality of life concerns to leadership in order to achieve desired change in programs and policies.   It’s an opportunity to provide feedback about what’s working, and what isn’t – AND what you think will fix it.  Issues may be submitted year round.  Contact ACS for the Issue Submission form.  AFAP  solicits input from Soldiers and families, seeks to find solutions, and, when appropriate, forwards issues up the chain of command. By using this form, you can offer your ideas and solutions.afap-crest.jpg
