FORT SAM HOUSTON, TEXAS (Oct. 23, 2015) -- The Total U.S. Army Sponsorship Program is in transition to become an online resource accessed through the Army Career Tracker, a leadership development web-based tool.
"This is huge for the Army," said Thomas Battle, the Army Total Sponsorship Program manager for U.S. Army Installation Management Command. "It allows commanders to know exactly when their Soldiers are showing up to the unit and assures them they have a sponsor to welcome them and guide them through the transition of coming to a new area and a new unit."
TASP is designed to help Soldiers better integrate into the Army and to assist them when they transition to different units.
"The always priority; the priority that exists all the time, regardless of whether it's today or tomorrow, is taking care of our Soldiers and taking care of our families," said Gen. Mark A. Milley, Chief of Staff of the Army.
