The Army is the strength of the nation and Soldiers are the strength of our Army. Veterans provide that strength to the local communities when they transition back to civilian life. Supporting our Soldiers and Army veterans requires a team approach by the Army, other government agencies, and the local community. The Army is committed to lifelong success for our Soldiers, veterans, and their families by connecting them with opportunities for employment, education and healthcare after military service. The Army is working with the Departments of Defense, Labor, Veterans Affairs and local communities to transition and reintegrate Soldiers and Army veterans into civilian life. While the nation calls you veterans, the Army knows - once a Soldier, a Soldier for life.
