“This is the best program I’ve participated in during my 18 years in the Army. You can effect change in real-time. We were able to make changes for today’s problems instead of just talking about the problems and hoping for a change ten years from now.”
– CW2 Mercedes Barrera, software developer
“This pilot was bold and daring and in line with AFC’s mission. I was very excited to be a part of it! It was a very small experiment and it was very successful, even with the curveball of COVID-19. This type of problem-solving will require everyone who participates to embrace change, which will be good for Army personnel across the board as we expand.”
– Ms. Susan Cranfill, Product Manager
