What is AFTB?

. AFTB is designed to inform our Soldiers and Families of the
benefits offered, both

personally and as leaders. Army Family Team Building will teach you that the

informed you are about the military and its environment, the better their
chances are for

a successful career; and the better prepared your Families are to handle
the challenges

of military living, the more Soldiers can concentrate on the mission.

During Daylight Saving Time, the sun appears to rise one hour later in the morning, when people are usually asleep anyway, and sets one hour later in the evening, seeming to stretch the day longer.
