Comments

This cheat sheet has a wealth of information. Thank you.

For your "Start a Business" section, add this non-profit! They are amazing, their services are FREE to all Veterans, they have an annual Business Summit (Free to attendees) to help Veterans become a true Certified and Registered Veteran-Owned Business and they are the reason whyy I have been so successful in my own business since departure from the military: https://wherecommunitiesserveveterans.org/
(note - -you mispelled Business as the header ! oops xx ) Thanks, Kelly

Wounded Warrior Project's Warriors to Work Program (https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/programs/warriors-to-work) is another excellent Transitioning Assistance Program for eligible veterans and their families!

Currently active duty and this is amazing.
