Transitioning Veterans find out there is a different world out there from the military. Some need to learn how to covert their military skills to comparable job skills, some need sensitivity training, some need to learn where to live, some need to learn how to write a resume. What is it that we don't have enough of that you would want to see more?

My honest answer does not provide a simple solution and that is "a civilian mindset". Those who served for a full term or more have a very difficult time adapting to a civilian employer mindset. This ranges from everything to forms of address to acting in the absence of orders and it can be a great challenge to revert back. The only advise I can give on this is to try to be aware and act accordingly (not easy since the 'military way' has become second nature for most of us).

A plan. As in, money saved, college or job, and if Plan A doesn't work have plans B, C, etc.

Money, and lots of it.

If I had lots of money, the other answers would not matter.
