You may or may not have heard of The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP), but if you haven't, chances are you are familiar with many of the programs and benefits that have been instituted under the umbrella of AFAP. Things like Army Family Team Building, BOSS, the increase in SGLI and BAH throughout the years, and on and on. AFAP allows soldiers and family members to give direct input to commanders and Army leaders on what is working, what isn't working and issues which need to be addressed. Basically, AFAP exists to improve the lives of Army families.
AFAP will celebrate its 25th anniversary on August 15. Today at 3:00 EDT, we'll host a a special 30-minute edition of SpouseBUZZ Talk Radio, which will be devoted to AFAP. We'll look at what AFAP has accomplished over the years and how it can continue to serve Army families in the years ahead. We're thrilled to welcome Beth Chiarelli as our guest today. Mrs. Chiarelli is the wife of General Peter W. Chiarelli, the new Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army.
