MANDATORY TAP Preseparation Briefings are provided every Thursday (Separatees from 8 -11 a.m. and Retirees from 11-2 p.m.) Did you know per Public Law 107-103, in the case of anticipated retirement, retiring service members can receive pre-separation counseling up to 24 months prior to date of separation? And a separating service member can receive pre-separation counseling up to 12 months prior to DOS. This is the first step in the process to making you "career ready" to leave the service and this briefing/counseling is required prior to attending the TAP GPS Workshop.

February 11 - 15
