The volunteers meet quarterly for the purpose of presenting issues of a local nature and suggest improvements for the wellbeing of retired Soldiers, family members and survivors to the Fort Gordon Garrison Command and to the chief of staff of the Army’s Retiree Council at Department of the Army. For more information, contact the Fort Gordon Retirement Services Officer at 791-2654, 791-1950 or send e-mail to gordrso-ftgordon@conus.army. mil.

All Soldiers, with more than 180 consecutive days of active duty service, must receive an ACAP pre-separation briefing, and complete DD Form 2648 or 2648-1, no later than 12 months prior to separating or retiring from the Army.
