Col. Dan McFarland, Fort Huachuca garrison commander, delivers a congratulatory speech during the ribbon cutting ceremony of the Army Career and Alumni Program’s renovated building Wednesday. The 10-month renovation includes technology-equipped classrooms, new office areas and a new air-conditioning system.

The Army Career and Alumni Program, or ACAP, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony, cake and tour to celebrate its building renovation Wednesday. The program provides a comprehensive system to assist personnel leaving the Army. It serves Soldiers, retirees and Family members. One of ACAP’s main goals is transitioning active-duty Soldiers into a post-Army life and career.

The 10-month revamping of the facility will help improve customer assistance by those involved in the program for future ACAP participants. New upgrades to the building include three state-of-the-art classrooms with wireless Internet capabilities and new computers and smart boards for instruction. The upgraded technological infrastructure will allow for virtual training, seminars, job fairs and interviews.

“I want to thank everybody who helped with this effort,” said Roger Shepard, ACAP transition services manager. “This has been fantastic as far as getting everything accomplished and everybody pitching in.”

ACAP personnel will now look forward to offering a variety of briefings and workshops in their newly renovated building. These include pre-separation briefings; three-day job search workshops; Veterans Administration, or VA, benefits briefings; VA disability claims sessions; and briefings on the VA Disabled Transition Assistance Program.

ACAP also offers staff facilitated seminars and workshops on resume writing, interviews, job fair preparation and applying for federal jobs.

“Because you committed to the service, we want to commit to you – anybody transitioning back to the dignity and everything else that comes with a good job after your time in the service, and quite frankly, you deserve it,” Col. Dan McFarland, Fort Huachuca garrison commander, said during the ceremony.

The ACAP facility is located in Building 22420, Butler Road. For more information about their services, call 533.5764.
