The United States Army Soldier for Life

Soldier for Life Cycle

Connect Army, governmental, and community efforts to build relationships that facilitate successful reintegration of our Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families in order to keep them Army Strong and instill their values, ethos, and leadership within communities.


Americans are proud of the military and see the Army as a strong career path. The U.S. Army wants the best educated, healthy and strong individuals to join the Army as a profession.


Forged in the crucible of austere, highly dynamic situations, Soldiers are adaptable, skilled, team players that desire to Serve Strong. As Soldiers serve, they continue to become stronger through technical skills education, credentialing opportunities, and professional leadership training.


In order to Reintegrate Strong, Soldiers must approach the Transition process throughout the life cycle of their career in order to be "career ready". We've found that Soldiers and their Families successfully prepare for re-integration through these focus areas: meaningful employment, access to education to improve marketability, and access to quality healthcare.

Remain Strong

Soldiers and their Families are the Veterans that are our ambassadors within in the community. Soldiers bring with them invaluable skills to include the Warrior Ethos and Army Values. They are Soldiers for Life Veterans, that Remain Strong, and thereby strengthen our communities and inspire future generations to serve.
