FORT RUCKER , Ala . - - Fort Rucker leadership is giving Soldiers and family members a chance to make their voices heard in what Army Community Service programs and services are important to them via a short survey being conducted by the Fort Rucker Inspector General’s office . But , so far , few people are taking advantage of the opportunity , and that could be to the community’s loss , according to Kent Thompson , chief of ACS . “ACS is an agency designed to help Soldiers and family members live a better life while they are in the Army , ” Thompson said . “You can live a much better life if you are informed and knowledgeable of things that affect you in the Army . We have everything from volunteer programs to relocation assistance to financial readiness to the Exceptional Family Member Program that helps families with special needs to family advocacy to new parent support – all of these programs are designed to help Soldiers and family members live a better life . ” Thompson added that all of ACS’ services and programs are explained on the Directorate of Family , and Morale , Welfare and Recreation website at https://rucker . armymwr . com/ . “This survey is super important , ” he continued . “It could have a huge impact on the Soldiers and family members of Fort Rucker . The results will inform command on whether or not they need to retain some of these services or not . ” It is also super short , according to Thompson . “There’s a QR code that you can scan to get started , ” he said . “It asks very simple questions like which ACS services did you use in the past 12 months and asks you to rate the services you received . If you just used one service , you’ll probably spend maybe five minutes on it – 15 minutes tops if you used all of our services . ” Those few minutes will be time well spent as the results will inform Maj . Gen . David J . Francis , U . S . Army Aviation Center of Excellence and Fort Rucker commanding general , the true impact of cuts ACS experienced in 2019 , and what programs are most beneficial to the Soldiers and families at the home of Army Aviation . To take the survey , scan the accompanying QR code with your smart phone .
