Each year over 200,000 service members transition from active service to civilian life. According to the U. S. Veterans Administration, over 53% (106,00) go on Unemployment Insurance for 22 weeks.
Small businesses are vital contributors to the U.S. economy, and veteran-owned small businesses are a historically important, and presently growing, segment of U.S. small businesses.
Studies show that women veterans face greater challenges than their male counterparts. Yet there are very few programs to help them re-assimilate into civilian life – and many feel left behind.
OPERATION REBOOT Is an Industry-Driven, Community-Lead initiative to “Reboot the lives & careers of transitioning service members and veterans and promote a Strong Workforce.”
