AFAP Virtual Town Hall Information

The Fort Detrick Army Family Action Plan Virtual Town Hall will take place on Feb. 21 from 2-4 p.m.

On Forest Glen Annex drop boxes are located at the Commissary and in the lobby of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR).

To submit online please visit https://detrick.armymwr.com/download_file/view/21939 (please use Mozilla Firefox) or email at usarmy.detrick.imcom-fmwrc.mbx.afap@mail.mil.

The AFAP town hall is a tool that provides the maximum opportunity for the community to participate and provide issues and concerns that are important to them through our AFAP Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/DetrickAFAP

The virtual town hall process is as follows:

Beginning at 2 p.m. on Feb. 21, the community is encouraged to post questions to the AFAP Facebook page regarding quality of life programs such as military personnel, housing, facilities and infrastructure, law enforcement and family programs as well as various other services offered through the Fort Detrick Garrison.

We will have subject matter experts from various organizations on post including but not limited to Child and Youth Services, Barquist Army Health Clinic, the Directorate of Human Resources, Civilian Personnel Advisory Center and Balfour Beatty Housing, who will be available to address your questions and offer valid solutions.

To avoid duplication, please review all previously-asked questions before posting your question and once posted, allow the SMEs time to answer. Some answers may be posted right away, while others may take time to research. However, we will get back to you with an answer within four business days.

Our goal is to answer as many issues or concerns in real time on Facebook during the AFAP Virtual Town Hall. Once we close the event we will continue to take questions and provide timely answers. Again, if we cannot answer right away, we will research and respond to your issue within four business days.
