New Army Retired Soldier Council members announced

The Army recently announced the names of three new members of the Chief of Staff, Army (CSA) Retired Soldier Council, which was also renamed to align it with the Soldier for Life program. The new members, who join the 14-member Council in April, were appointed by the CSA to serve four-year terms.

The Council’s three-fold mission is to:

  • Provide the CSA with advice and recommendations regarding vital issues and concerns of retired Soldiers, surviving spouses, and their families.
  • Provide the CSA an assessment of how current Army programs and initiatives and proposals for new laws and of how policies may affect the retired community.
  • Strengthen communications between the Active Army, the Army National Guard, the U.S. Army Reserve, and the retired community.

CSA Retired Soldier Council members must be current members of installation or Army Service Component Command retiree councils. They were nominated to serve on the Army council by their garrison commanders. For more information about the Retired Soldier council program, contact a retirement services officer.
