Incoming Soldier Sponsorship
No matter how many times you've PCSed or even if you've been assigned to U.S. Army Garrison Rock Island Arsenal before, you need to make contact with your sponsor to make sure you're aware of the latest in-processing policies and requirements Before you arrive. Although sponsorship is not required for Tier III service members, it is still beneficial, so consider this option carefully before opting out of sponsorship when PCSing to RIA. Unit and individual readiness are hot items here in and sponsorship is an important aspect of readiness.
Your sponsor is the key to your successful PCS. They will save you valuable time and hassle before, during and after your arrival. To assist Soldiers sponsoring incoming families, we have established youth and spouse sponsorship programs. These programs work with your Soldier sponsor to provide a comprehensive sponsorship experience and ensure the entire family is welcomed appropriately. Talk to your Soldier sponsor about the youth and spouse sponsorship programs today!
Your gaining unit will appoint you a sponsor. You will need to log on to the Army Career Tracker (use this link https://actnow.army.mil/), Total Army Sponsorship Program Module from a government computer and complete required information in order to help your unit assign an appropriate sponsor.
