Transitioning from military to civilian life can feel like navigating uncharted territory. For many veterans, the end of military service isn't just a career change; it's a profound shift in identity and purpose. You may find yourself asking, "What's next?" or "How can I translate my military skills into a meaningful civilian career?" These questions are not just common; they're a critical part of the journey for veterans across the United States.
