A permanent-change-of-station move, commonly know as PCS, can be overwhelming, especially for new Soldiers. The Total Army Sponsorship Program is designed to lessen the anxiety.
"Each Soldier, colonel through private, will be appointed a sponsor and beginning Feb. 20, all Soldiers will be monitored through Army Career Tracker," said Jesse French, Human Resources director. "They will be able to integrate smoothly into their gaining unit with compassion and less stress."
Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Blakely, is Fort Leonard Wood's Sponsorship Program liaison. He said the program is especially useful for new Soldiers.
