Transitioning to Life After Military Service

America’s Heroes Group podcast, episode 366, features Transitioning Assistance Program (TAP) initiatives. Margarita Devlin joins us as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Operations and Management at the U.S Department of Labor.

“Trained individuals who are career counselors who will sit with a service member after they go through the class and work with them one on one to help them identify their career path. That’s sometimes the hardest piece,” said Devlin.

The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) provides information, resources, and tools to service members and their loved ones to help prepare for the move from military to civilian life. Service members begin TAP one year prior to separation, or two years prior to retiring. Watch the video above to see how VA TAP helps service members transition from military to civilian life.

America Heroes Group’s mission is to honor and respect the relentless commitment, ultimate sacrifice, and unwavering dedication of our retired Veterans and Active Service members thereby empowering and transforming their lives as they age in place and reacclimate back into society through identifying and positioning local and national communities as military friendly.
