TAP consists of pre-separation counseling, employment assistance and a set of benefits for involuntary separatees who qualify.
The Fleet and Family Support Center conducts a five-day TAP employment workshop for sailors planning to leave the Navy or retire.
These information-packed workshops are designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to plan and execute a successful transition.
