The Joint Family Action Plan (JFAP):
JFAP is the “voice of the customer” and is an integral program within Army Community Service and Military & Family Readiness Center (M&FRC). It engages Service members, families, survivors, retirees and civilians across all military components to identify, prioritize, and elevate quality of life issues to senior leaders for action and resolution.
The JFAP is conducted annually.
Family Member Travel:
Concurrent travel means you have permission, from your unit commander, to bring your spouse and family with you at the same time you travel to Alaska. You must have all of your authorized family members listed on your PCS orders to do concurrent travel. To arrive in Alaska without approved concurrent travel creates a huge financial burden on you. GET CONCURRENT TRAVEL PERMISSION BEFORE YOUR PCS ORDERS ARE PUBLISHED AND PRINTED. Contact your losing installations local Military Personnel Flight or Military Personnel Division (S1), Relocations/Outbound Assignments section.
If you get married before you relocate, you must inform your commander and follow the procedures exactly as you are given them. The military will not pay for travel and housing of your spouse if you do not follow proper procedures.
