MISSION:
The Fort Liberty Transition Center is dedicated to facilitating seamless transitions for all service members and is committed to providing comprehensive support that empowers service members in their journey towards civilian life.

***  ATTENTION RETIRING SERVICE MEMBERS  ***

The Fort Liberty Transition Center is currently processing retirement packets for individuals with separation dates falling within an eight-month window. Our team is dedicated and working diligently to process retirement orders. To help you manage expectations, orders will be issued no later than six months from retirement date. Thank you for your understanding. 

***ATTENTION UNIT S-1***

IN ORDER TO AVOID UNNECESSARY DELAYS PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL PERSONNEL ACTION REQUESTS (PAR) ARE ROUTED TO THE CORRECT UNIT DISTRIBUTION LIST (UDL). DO NOT SEND A PAR TO A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL IN THE TRANSITION CENTER AS IT MAY RUN THE RISK OF NOT BEING ACTIONED IF THE EMPLOYEE IS ABSENT OR DEPARTS FROM THE TEAM.
