DA Forms 137-1 and 137-2 and use of these out-processing procedures are required for all soldiers departing on a PCS and soldiers transitioning from active duty (including demobilizing RC soldiers).

Each activity must complete the appropriate section of the form and confirm that the soldier does or does not owe debt, state the amount if a debt is owed, complete the remaining required information, and sign (not initial) the appropriate space.

Youth Sponsorship helps relocated youth to become familiar with the Fort Buchanan community. Sponsors are matched to youth according to their gender, age, and interests. The sponsors escort incoming youth around the post, school area, and to the Child, Youth & School Services Centers. They introduce the new arrival to others within their age/grade level and to the various activities. There are "Hail and Farewell" activities for the newly arrived and the soon to depart youth. These social functions assist in making new friends and saying good-bye to old ones.Interested in participating in the Youth Sponsorship Program?
