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!

Excellent resource! Thank you for pulling all this information together. I heard about this sheet from a participant in one of the DOL transition workshops. Incidentally, here is the current link to the DOL VETS-TAP workshop participant guides: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/vets/programs/tap. The older links are no longer valid. I will be sharing this sheet with others. Thanks again! Gayle Ataceri

Just a few comments, not criticism. Blue Button isn't Tricare, it is Myhealthevet. Tricare is TOL Personal Health Data, I believe. Advise the member to bring a list of their problems to their discharge physical so everything gets covered. Include this alphabetical list of disabilities (not all-inclusive) in your list: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/38/appendix-C_to_part_4 Have them review the Problems and Encounters lists in their medical records to see what disabilities they may have been diagnosed with or treated for. This is a wonderfully helpful tool!
