Public Law 111-84: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010, October 28, 2009 This act authorizes appropriations for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes. This act also establishes the Recovering Warrior Taskforce.
The military gives every service member the opportunity to enter with virtually no skills and leave with an array of skills needed in the civilian job market. Some job-related skills are easily converted to civilian terms — military police become law enforcement officers, for example. Other skills, such as leadership and discipline, are also highly prized by civilian companies. Your military career will give you the chance to explore job opportunities and develop your own personal skill set. Knowing what skills to pursue and then developing them will help guide your career decisions while you're in the military.
The military's wounded warrior programs provide assistance and advocacy for severely wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans and their families. These programs assist service members and their families as they return to duty or transition to civilian life.
