Making the transition back to civilian life and civilian work environments after serving in the field can be a difficult challenge, especially for the newer and younger generation of servicemen and women who were deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan. The lack of access to adequate transitional counseling and services presents them with daunting challenges, such as finding employment and adjusting to the social environment of the civilian world that they are ill-equipped to handle and, in most cases, are unwilling (or don’t know how) to seek assistance to address. Also, currently there are no existing courses that adequately address the psychological factors of transitioning from military to civilian life before release or immediately after.
Many of the above issues can be avoided with early intervention and proper transitioning from the military. More

REBOOT Class #19
I attended reboot 4 months before retiring in 2011 and found employment one month after separating from service. I got a federal job and even got promoted a year later. My training from Reboot continuously provides me the personal and professional confidence to excel in my profession. It’s very important to maintain the personal knowledge we gained from reboot, otherwise it’s just another training wasted if not used.
I have now found my place! I am settling in at one of the top Chemical Intermediate Plants in the world! Lyondell Basell
I could not have done this without Maurice and his skilled team. My advice to all the new REBOOT members is to listen be active in the class! The wealth of knowledge you will receive on how to cope and move on! I have taken all the information and flooded my life with a lifetime of opportunity. Who would have thought A disabled vet can get a good job! Do not settle for NO! You will succeed. I love helping individuals find there way in life. If you have trouble ask! I myself and others will always be here for you all!
“The present structure of the military really requires intensive training on the front end (requiring) weeks of boot camp. But one of the things we’re finding is that there’s not as much effort on the back end as those service members are separating and preparing to enter the work force.”
