Bridging the Gap from Soldier to Civilian – A Road Map to Success for Veterans
After spending years in the military and, then as a civilian, working, earning degrees, and starting his own business, Michael Bluemling Jr. knows what a soldier needs to transition out of the armed services. Bridging the Gap from Soldier to Civilian: A Road Map to Success for Veterans highlights the full range of steps to take--from examining the wisdom of leaving to describing the benefits and programs available to former soldiers.
Many steps are best taken while still in the military, and Bluemling notes these--documents to secure, medical exams to complete to the soldier's full satisfaction, and important contacts to make. In addition, Bridging the Gap realistically considers options as a civilian, as well as gives specific action to assure a smooth transition to civilian life.
