Capstone Review is the culminating activity to verify whether SMs have/have not met their Career Readiness Standards (CRS).  The Capstone Review, in conjunction with the ITP, will be used by the TAP counselor and the commander (or commander’s designee) to verify status of CRS completion.  The CRS are defined as a set of common and specific activities and associated relevant deliverables (documentation within the last 12 months) that must be achieved to demonstrate SMs are prepared to transition effectively and pursue their personal post-separation higher education, career technical training, or civilian employment goals.


Once the Capstone Review is complete, the SM will electronically sign the eForm, then the transition counselor will electronically sign and send to commander/commanders designee through the ES for electronic signature.  Once the eForm is signed by the commander/commanders designee, the SM will be able to print out a PDF version of the eForm (DD Form 2648).  Once all mandates have been met, the A&FRC may clear SM from vOP.


Capstone is required for all eligible separating/retiring personnel and should occur NLT 90 days prior to anticipated separation/retirement; however, if a member has less than 90 days left in the military, the SM should attend as soon as possible within their remaining period of service.  There are No Exemptions for these requirements.  


Capstone is conducted at the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) every Wednesday from 1400-1500.
