Military Members: We're listening

Gerry C. and Tom P. talk about AA’s Armed Forces Interview Project

In early 2022, two sober alcoholics and long-serving military AA members, now retired, began serving as consultants to the GSO’s Trustee’s Cooperation with the Professional Community/Treatment and Accessibilities Committee. Their role? To advise on and participate in the work of the sub-committee for Military Outreach whose goal is to improve AA’s outreach to serving military members in the U.S. and Canadian armed forces. During the ensuing year, Gerry C. and Tom P. conducted 23 audio interviews with military members. Visit and search “military” to hear some interviews. Grapevine spoke with them about the project.
