Has the military transition process left you feeling utterly hopeless?

Are you frustrated with trying to fill in the gaps in the information that was provided to you by the official military transition seminars?

Then it's time for you to Get 2 Vet!

We are a military transition podcast who's goal is to showcase transitioning service members and help them build their personal brands, while enhancing the current DOD-provided transition education.

    Suicide Prevention with Moniqua Christensen

    This episode is dedicated to the memory of EODCS(ret.) Steve "Coop" Cooper.
    If you were to ask most people what the number "22" means to them, they would probably look at you funny.
    If you ask veterans the same question, you'll probably hear something along the lines of "National tragedy".
    In this episode, Mike and Trevor discuss suicide prevention with Moniqua Christensen, including some of the causes and warning signs of potentially suicidal behavior, the importance of veterans maintaining accountability of each other, as well as what to do if you find yourself in a situation where you're dealing with someone who presents a suicide risk.

Essential Information for Transitioning Miliy

If you are transitioning, or currently in the military - you will transition someday- listen to this podcast. Mike and Trevor are the real deal. They have been through and are going through the process. The emotions are raw and genuine, and the advice and information are excellent- from their network of expert advisors. My favorite podcast.

BecomeRage ,

The premise is good….

I wanted to really like this podcast. The premise is sound and there is definitely a need for it. Where it falls short is that it seems to be narrowly focused and somewhat self-aggrandizing towards the EOD community. The hosts should apply their experience and sea stories to a broader transitioning audience vice exclusively the “operator” community.

They would also do well to remember that they introduced themselves in the first few podcasts, so their repetitive introductions to each guest come at the expense of the listeners who don’t need to be reminded about Mike’s internship in DC or that Trevor likes the Honor Foundation. We got it - Mike was Trevor’s first Chief. Move on and actually get to vet….all vets.

Keeping up with my tribe

A great podcast for any military member past or present for transitioning out of the military or who may be early in their military career looking down the road. Mike and Trevor talk about things that are important to me. If they cover things I know already, then I’m reassured that I’ve made the best decisions for me and my family. Super stoked for more episodes!!!
