We saved the best for last.


I'm excited to wrap up this week's series with Belief 3️⃣: We need to connect with our community to build meaningful relationships that will sustain that transition.


We simply cannot rely on a bloated bureaucracy to solve our problems for us. We need to rely on ourselves and each other.


If we're being honest, we don't even trust the DoD to properly fight wars, defend our borders, and provide mental and physical healthcare to our friends who were injured so why would we trust them to provide the professional transition tools?

The best non-military innovations of the GWOT era are the non-profits and accelerators that do provide those tools. Organizations like Shift, The Honor Foundation, Bunker Labs, American Corporate Partners, Elite Meet, Shift Group, others.


The Transition Assistance Program is a generalized application of generalized “best” practices from generalized corporate authorities for a generalized military audience.


These non-profits and accelerators are smaller, more targeted communities of fellow veterans who provide differentiated approaches to both life and work with integrated tools for the world as it is now, not as it was post-Vietnam.

They also provide the most important aspect of our ongoing transition from service to civilian: human connection.


Next week, we'll explore why building relationships is so much better than networking.


Terminal leave is too late. Do the work that's right in front of you, and see what happens.
