"Bringing Soldiers and Services Together"
Community Information & Referral is the key source of integrated information that brings Soldiers and services together every day with ease, compassion, and quality to meet vital needs of all Soldiers, Department of Army Civilians, Retiree’s and their families. Our vision is for all people to have easy access to information and services provided in our Community.
