While every veteran transition is unique, there are three keys to a successful transition from military to civilian life: health and well-being, access to education and training, and finding meaningful employment. More than 45,000 nonprofit organizations, government programs and initiatives, corporations, and millions of individuals are committed to addressing these issues. However, these groups often work in isolution, causing confusion and disjointed gaps in service for transitioning veterans and their families.
