This site is for anyone interested in Veteran-centric topics. Veterans have dedicated their lives to serving our country, so it is our turn to serve them as they transition back into civilian lives. One thing that has been discovered is that there is a lack of knowledge on the availability of resources and how to properly navigate the system upon exiting military service. This site's purpose is to help fill this knowledge gap and guide veterans to the resources and information they so deserve.

Veteran Resources & Transition Guide

Research, Knowledge, and Resources for your Transition into Civilian Life and Beyond! The current problem in our society demonstrates that many veterans, when they transition out of the military, do not have the knowledge, training, or resources to reintegrate back into civilian society properly in their efforts to survive. They do not know where to go, what to do, and do not even have a plan to survive in the civilian world. This guide is intended to educate, provide evidence and research, and provide knowledge and resources to veterans in the effort to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of veteran issues and help veterans understand and survive their transitional experience after military separation. The purpose of the Veteran Reintegration Guide is to provide a ONE STOP or QUICK REFERENCE source of Research, Knowledge, and Resources for veterans to easily reference in the effort to help educate veterans on the issues, challenges, and process of transitioning out of the military, what to do once they get out, develop a plan, and provide resources to help make life a little easier during and after that experience. Additional information has been added for SURVIVORS BENEFITS to help surviving widows, a MILITARY 101 CLASS to help educate the civilian workforce on military culture and lifestyle, VETERAN EMPLOYMENT to help transition into the civilian workforce, VETERAN SPOUSE TRANSITION resources (because you are not alone), VETERAN SUICIDE (a very serious issue), VA HOME LOANS and BENEFITS to make that process easier, and 1000’s of RESOURCES to help make life as veteran a little easier. Additional intent of this guide is to make it a living document by taking input from readers and providers on information and resources, providing annual updates to veterans on the ever-changing and developing process of transitioning and resources.

Being a Veteran isn't easy!

You don't have to do it alone.


As Veterans, we must navigate many issues, obstacles, and just challenges when we get out of the military and transition back into civilian life. So it would be nice to be able to have a place, or someone, to whom we can ask questions or for advice to help guide us through these challenges. So how does this service work, you ask? Well, it is a membership-type service. There are two membership levels: BASIC (advice only) and EXPERT (advice with resources). You pay a nominal monthly fee and get advice back within 24-48 hours by email. There are additional benefits to membership, like future content that will be released throughout the year, like articles, resources, and interesting information. If this sounds like something you are interested in, please click the link below and join us in this new adventure.
