What is the assumption. Develop two course of action to fix the problem. Explain what you recommend.


Here’s what you generally can expect from your sponsor:

· You’ll typically be paired with a sponsor who is similar in rank and family status. If you’re the parent of a toddler, for example, it helps to be paired with a fellow mom or dad who will know the places for your little one to burn off energy.

· You will work with your sponsor throughout the moving process. Requirements for sponsors vary by service.

· Once you arrive, your sponsor may want to meet with you and your family to show you around or help you through in-processing.

Be sure not to confuse a moving sponsor with 

command sponsorship
. The military-wide sponsorship program is a resource available to all military families no matter where they are moving. In contrast, command sponsorship or “accompanied orders,” is a designation for families moving overseas. If you have command sponsorship, it will appear on your orders and provides several benefits to families during and after the move.

Sponsors are trained service-members who help newcomers settle in to a new duty station. Sponsors are available to all military families, no matter where you are moving. They are assigned through your unit, and usually have the same rank and family status as you do, so they can more easily understand your particular needs and help you get settled.

The Army’s Sponsorship Program, as prescribed in AR 600-8-8, The Total Army Sponsorship Program, requires every first-term Soldier have a sponsor. The sponsor acts as a big brother or sister and helps the Soldier learn Army standards and develop a sense of responsibility and teamwork. After that initial assignment, TASP offers sponsors for every Soldier, Private through Colonel, and likewise for every Civilian in grades up to GS-15. A vital part of the Sponsorship Program that is often forgotten or overlooked is the rear detachment support provided to Family members of deployed Soldiers and Civilians.

So we have in our regulations a Sponsorship Program that covers all members of our community. I want to make sure that what is outlined on paper is also happening in our communities. Soldiers, Civilians and Family members will have a sponsor to provide information and support before, during and after transitions, mobilizations and deployments.

We must make sure sponsors are well-equipped for their important role. Sponsors must understand their role and have the necessary information and resources to fulfill it. Even more so, sponsors must be willing to reach out and make human contact, especially with new Soldiers, first-time Civilian employees, and Family members who are unfamiliar with the Army way of life.

Above all, I want to ensure that commanders are invested in the success of the Sponsorship Program within their community. TASP is a commander’s program. Its success is contingent upon the commander’s involvement and support. It is leadership’s responsibility to send the message that sponsorship is something important to do and to do it right. At the most basic level, that means having an adequate pool of sponsors to meet the needs of the community and supporting those sponsors with reasonable time and resources to do a good job.
