U.S. Army Human Resources Command

Fort Knox, KY – In 2016, the Army’s transition program, the Soldier for Life – Transition Assistance Program (SFL-TAP), began a two year pilot program at six installations worldwide to test the “one size fits all” concept behind transition.

Congress enacted the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act in 2011, which mandated Preseparation Counseling, Department of Labor Employment Workshop (DOLEW), and Veterans Affairs Briefings I and II. This was followed by the Department of Defense mandating Career Readiness Standards (CRS) that Soldiers are required to complete before leaving active duty service.
