P Snyder ,

Exceptional podcast for Soldiers leaving service

This podcast has been a revelation and extremely helpful in preparing for my separation from the military. I’m active duty Army and retiring from a “remote” duty station not near a military installation. I listen to the podcast to and from work and take copious notes. Then take advantage of the resources and the recommendations are on point. Great host, excellent guests and extremely topical for all Soldiers!

Really enjoy this podcast

As a soon to be transitioning veteran I am collecting a lot of data for my future work. The podcast is great for helping to share information about money, jobs, opportunities, etc. You should take a listen and I think it will prove itself worth your time.


Valuable information

I love the innovative delivery of valuable information to our Soldiers, families, and veterans!!!
