At a recent Dept. of Labor event, Asst. Secretary Keith Kelly spoke of the importance of “Honoring Veterans Through Opportunity”
Several programs are available to help exiting service members in their transition to civilian life, including:
- My Next Move for Veterans, where veterans can enter their military occupation code, and discover civilian occupations for which they are well-qualified.
- The Transition Assistance Program, which helps exiting service members prepare for civilian life.
- The Women Veterans Initiative, designed to address the issue of women veterans’ unemployment.
