Making the transition from the military world back to the civilian world is a difficult task. The problem is compounded if you are a still recovering from combat, recuperating from wounds, moving to a new location, transitioning with a family to take care of, and many other factors. The good news is there are dozens of agencies and Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) that were created to help veterans and their families, or their survivors.

Veteran Service Organizations do not charge for the veterans’ services they provide. They normally have veterans who are familiar with the VA system available to help with all manner of veteran benefits. They are there to help you as a veteran with obtaining your disability benefits, educational benefits, or any number of other resources that you may need.

Many VSO’s offer resume consultation, help with financial assistance and help transitioning service members and their dependents with the transition process which can be very daunting when you face it by yourself.

Theses VSO’s provide personal assistance that is directly related to your particular situation. So no matter what your situation is, do not ignore this valuable resource!
