The number of Service members who "transition from the military back to their civilian communities" each year, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) -- The Military to Civilian Transition 2018: A Review of Historical, Current, and Future Trends.
The military to civilian transition occurs within a complex and dynamic network of relationships, programs, services, and benefits, which includes transition planning and assistance efforts by individual Service branches, the interagency Transition Assistance Program (TAP), and community resources delivered through local government, private industry, and nonprofit organizations. This network (or ecosystem) delivers a holistic approach to help transitioning Service members and their families succeed at a critical juncture in their life journey.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, in collaboration with our interagency partners, is proud to provide this overview of the military to civilian transition through the lens of historical transition support, current transition assistance services and programs, and the key drivers shaping the near future of the transition assistance process.
