JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas —

The Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston Military & Family Readiness Center hosted the first ever TAP Too workshop for spouses of transitioning service members Aug. 28.

Attending the workshop were 42 military spouses and service members, and five members of the JBSA leadership team, who learned about resources and programs available to them that can help them in their transition into civilian life.

The workshop included topics and issues impacting spouses of transitioning service members covered by subject matter experts from programs and organizations throughout JBSA and the local community, from financial preparedness to emotional mindfulness.

Attendees were also able to get information on 25 resources and programs within JBSA and the local community at tables set up during the workshop.

In addition, a panel of spouses who have gone through the transition process shared their experiences with the attendees.

TAP, or Transition Assistance Program, provides counseling and job assistance to service members who are preparing to leave the military.
