Texas Business reports:  The Army announced today it will close the Dallas-Fort Worth Personnel Assistance Point (PAP) and consolidate operations with the Atlanta PAP by April 1, 2012. 

The consolidation is a response to a decrease in the number of deployed service members traveling between the United States and theaters of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The USO facility at Dallas-Fort Worth will remain open and provide assistance to service members and their families traveling through the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport.

Commemoration events are planned in March to recognize support provided by the Dallas-Fort Worth community and thousands of volunteers who welcomed and supported deployed soldiers and civilians traveling there between the United States and theaters of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
