During a brief time, after retiring from the military, I worked with the Airman and Family Readiness mission at an Air Force base. One of my functions was to coordinate briefings for separating/retiring military personnel as part of the Transition Assistance Program (TAP).
Another aspect of my job had me interviewing 1st-term airmen before they separated.
Both audiences presented unique challenges, not the least of which included another move and employment.
While responding to this thread, imagine what message and resources you might present to these veterans.
