One of those programs is called “Troops to Teachers”. The program recognizes the skills a military person has learned serving their country and helps transition them into the classrooms of America. “Troops to Teachers” is a U.S. Department of Defense program that helps eligible military personnel begin a new career as teachers in public schools where their skills, knowledge and experience are most needed. The program is a great way to transition to the Private Market Place. See http://www.proudtoserveagain.com.
For those troops looking to own their own business, the International Franchise Association has started a program which discounts the cost of a franchise to those troops who would like to do something on their own. The participating IFA members proudly show these offerings on the their website. The chance to own your own business at a discounted price is a great way to open the door to the future. See http://www.franchise.org/Veteran-Franchise.aspx for a complete list of those members participating in the program.
Welcome home, ladies, welcome home gentlemen we are proud of you and what you have done for your country.
