FORT KNOX, Ky. — Approximately 150 Transition Assistance Program personnel from 60 Army TAP Centers around the world connected with one another during a three-day, biannual training symposium Sept. 27-29 at Ft. Knox.

The Transition Assistance Program, headquartered at Fort Knox, is the agency that helps soldiers successfully transition to the civilian sector after separation from the military. According to Stacie Provine, TAP’s director of strategic communications, the agency provides critical instruction, training and resources to help service members and their families make this change.


During the three-day Transition Assistance Program training symposium at Fort Knox Sept. 27-29, 2022, approximately 150 TAP personnel shared best practices, networked, and learned on improving ways to help soldiers successfully transition from military to civilian life.

Provine said national business representatives also spoke at the symposium to educate attendees on ways their organizations can help soldiers.

“We also have people from different companies here to talk about the different hiring programs they offer for veterans,” Provine said. “They come here and talk, and our TAP people can bring that information back with them and share it with their soldiers.”

This year’s symposium provided TAP advisors, administrators, and managers with opportunities to share best practices, network with each other, and learn ways to improve how they can better serve soldiers and families with their transition from army to civilian life.

“By coming together, we can share the tricks of the trade or what’s best to do,” Provine said. “Just being all under one roof where we can speak directly with each other is so beneficial.”

Throughout the symposium, TAP staff participated in numerous trainings and team building exercises. Provine said the enthusiasm attendees consistently expressed was a testament to their dedication and passion for serving the military community.

“We have to take care of the soldiers who take care of us first,” Provine said. “They are fighting for us, so when they come back we have to fight for them and make sure they are ready for success.”

On average, TAP supports approximately 100,000 transitioning soldiers from all components each year.
