Some veterans may struggle to find civilian employment. For example, a veteran may not know how his or her military training could apply to a civilian job. Federal law requires DOD and the Coast Guard to establish centers to provide help.
We found they have established more than 300 employment assistance centers at military installations worldwide. According to DOD, about 90% of eligible active duty servicemembers used the Transition Assistance Program, a program offered at the centers that provides counseling, information on veterans' benefits, and more.
