NEW – SURVEY TO UNDERSTAND CHALLENGES OF TRANSITIONING. (FROM MILITARY-TRANSITION ORG: “”Almost half of the veterans we’ve surveyed claim their transition into the civilian workforce was ‘more difficult’ than expected,” says Brian Niswander, an Air Force veteran, Reservist, and the chief architect of a comprehensive transition study. The data in this latest transition study can be viewed online at www.military-transition.org/results.html and is meant to be utilized by service members before, during, and after their transition. Users can view survey responses for the entire military community or select combinations of branch, rank, years of service, education, specialty, age, and gender to see how the data changes.”
