DALLAS – Military members transitioning to civilian life can make a business statement from head-to-toe with the Exchange’s support of the Army Career & Alumni Program/Transition Assistance Program (ACAP/TAP).

As a means of serving those who serve, top trendsetters such as Billy London®, Van Heusen®, and Haggar® are partnering with the Exchange to provide the latest in business fashion.

“Switching from military service to the civilian workforce can be a dramatic change, especially for longtime servicemembers,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Staff Col. Tom Ockenfels. “The Exchange is ready to assist with quality attire that will help Soldiers and Airmen make a good first impression and succeed in the business environment.”

Authorized Exchange shoppers can pick up a free copy of “Welcome Home: A Military Man’s Guide to Style” at their nearest main store where weekly sales fliers are located. For more information regarding the ACAP/TAP, shoppers can speak with a Store Manager. Exchange locations and contact information are available through the “Exchange Stores” section at www.shopmyexchange.com.
