Life After the Military: A Handbook for Transitioning Veterans
Hundreds of thousands of military members are making the transition to civilian life each year. This transition is a move into unfamiliar territory, and can be an extremely uncomfortable process. But there are resources in place that can relieve much of the stress of the challenging situations that may arise. In Life After the Military: A Handbook for Transitioning Veterans, authors Janelle Hill, Don Philpott, and Cheryl Lawhorne collect all the information needed to settle into life after the military. The book discusses the many issues that transitioning veterans are faced with such as finding employment, going back to school, managing finances, special benefits available to veterans, and a host of other issues the transitioning veteran is likely to face when making the move to civilian life. It also discusses the emotional and psychological challenges that come with leaving the military and settling into life as a civilian. This book is essential for all who are transitioning out of the military and their loved ones.
