Army Emergency Relief

The Army Emergency Relief Office (AER) is in Building 50010 at the Smith Avenue traffic circle.

AER was organized during the early part of World War II by popular demand. Army members sought an agency of their own to which they could turn for assistance in emergencies.

Accordingly, AER was organized to collect, hold and disburse funds for this purpose. Its motto, “the Army takes care of its own,” has been proudly supported since its beginning by both active and retired members of the military and their families. This nonprofit organization achieves this ongoing mission with the generous donations made throughout the year and contributions received during the yearly AER Campaign held March 1 through May 15.

Those eligible for AER assistance include Soldiers on extended active duty and their dependents, and Reserve component Soldiers (Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve) who are active duty on training or serving under various sections of Title 10, United States Code. This also applies to Soldiers retired from active duty for longevity, retired by reason of physical disability or retired at age 60 under Section 1331, Title 10, United States Code. Dependents are included, as well as surviving spouses and orphans of eligible Soldiers who died while on active duty or after they were retired as previously identified.

The AER works hand in hand with the American Red Cross and relief organizations of the Navy and Air Force.

In recognition of a need that exists for Army members, AER established an undergraduate educational assistance program as a secondary program to that of providing emergency financial assistance. The educational assistance program is designed to assist spouses and dependent children of Army personnel who need financial assistance to pursue postsecondary-level study, to include vocational training, preparation for acceptance by service academies and college education.

AER assistance is extended by grants or noninterest-bearing loans repaid by allotment or both. Personnel who need emergency assistance from AER should first report their problem to their unit commander or first sergeant. Secondly, personnel should come to Army Community Service (Building 50010) and pick up an application to begin a request for assistance. The AER officer or the AER assistant will then conduct an interview. If all conditions of AR 930-4 are met and the situation warrants, AER will extend assistance. For all other AER inquiries, call 520-533-5312.

Services and Facilities: H-L

Ft Huachuca Services and Facilities Directorate of Human Resources

Directorate of Human Resources

The Directorate of Human Resources recently implemented several changes to streamline Soldier in- and out-processing procedures. These efficiencies are more Soldier-friendly and have reduced the time required for Soldiers to process in and out of Fort Huachuca.

The new procedures for in-processing allow Soldiers to tailor their processing to meet their individual and Family needs. Some mandatory stops (Personnel, Finance, MEDDAC, Central Issue Facility and Army Substance Abuse Program) still exist. However, many of these mandatory stops are within a small footprint and within walking distance. Also within the footprint are several optional stops, depending on Soldiers’ needs and interests. To expedite the process further, many agencies that previously required long information briefings have condensed their information into custom handouts and fact sheets that are available during installation in-processing.

A Soldier’s first stop to in-process remains his or her unit of assignment. Soldiers must sign in from leave at their unit. The unit then performs unit-specific processing in conjunction with Post Security and the Directorate of Information Management. The unit prepares a duty position assignment memorandum and instructs all newly arrived Soldiers to report to Murr Community Center, Building 51301, by 7:30 a.m. on Wednesdays. Soldiers in-processing must have the following items in their possession: duty position assignment memorandum; ID card and tags; DA Form 31; assignment orders, to include amendments and endorsements. The only other mandatory stops are at Central Issue Facility and MEDDAC, where Soldiers will receive mandatory briefings on TRICARE and Put Prevention into Practice on the first Tuesday after arrival on post.

The new out-processing procedures also save Soldiers considerable time. The key to the time saving is the Department of the Army Installation Support Module system. This program allows agencies to electronically pre-clear departing Soldiers up to 30 days prior to permanent change of station, end tour of service or retirement. If an activity does not indicate a need to see a Soldier, then that activity or the Military Personnel Division will pre-clear the Soldier. Soldiers can help this process work for them by ensuring that open business accounts with agencies (such as books checked out of the library) are closed out once they receive their official orders. The new Army Transition policy for those who will be separating or retiring begins 18 months prior to separation/retirement with the completion of a DD Form 2648, Pre-separation Counseling Checklist, at the Soldier For Life – Transition Assistance Program (SFL-TAP) Center and continues until final separation.

The SFL-TAP process is a carefully designed series of services that inform and assist in securing the help they need to transition successfully. For the military, the transition starts with a pre-separation briefing. Attendees learn about career options, transition benefits and the services available to assist them. Attendees continue their SFL-TAP involvement by visiting the SFL-TAP Center to register for additional services.

Pre-separation: All transitioning Soldiers are required by law to enroll in SFL-TAP. Retirees may enroll two years prior to projected retirement date, and all others may enroll 18 months prior to separation date.

Workshop: The workshop covers job search skills such as resume and application development; dressing for success; interviewing skills; researching companies; networking; considering and negotiating job offers; and guidance on searching for employment through the Department of Labor. Clients are then encouraged to personally meet with professional counselors to develop and hone skills learned in the workshop and to use the computer workstations for developing resumes and researching job opportunities on the internet.

Job Assistance: After completion of the workshop, transitioners may schedule individual counseling sessions. Counselors help job seekers identify an objective, write cover letters, complete applications, find job opportunities, prepare for interviews and job fairs, and negotiate for salary and benefits.

Finance: Transitioning Soldiers will complete five hours of financial planning as part of the five-day curriculum of the SFL-TAP process.
