About 250,000 active duty military members will transition out of service and into civilian life in 2020. And for most of these families, the first step is finding a new career – yet, nearly 44 percent of veterans leave their first post-military job within a year. There are different reasons for this, but the root causes are the same: the transition takes planning and soon-to-be veterans need both guidance and support.
