Army to Consolidate Personnel Assistance Point Operations at Atlanta Airport

            The Army announced today it will close the Dallas-Fort Worth Personnel Assistance Point (PAP) and consolidate operations with the Atlanta PAP by April 1, 2012.  The consolidation is a response to a decrease in the number of deployed service members traveling between the United States and theaters of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            The USO facility at Dallas-Fort Worth will remain open and provide assistance to service members and their families traveling through the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.

            Commemoration events are planned in March to recognize the tremendous support provided by the Dallas-Fort Worth community and thousands of volunteers who welcomed and supported deployed soldiers and civilians traveling there between the United States and theaters of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            For questions pertaining to the Dallas-Fort Worth Personnel Assistance Point Closure please contact Hank Minitrez at 703-693-1854.
