Getting prepared to separate or retire from the military is critical for a smooth transition, particularly if you have a family member with special needs. Whether you’re transitioning out after one enlistment or multiple enlistments, or retiring after 20 years or more, being prepared and having a plan in place can help ease the transition to civilian life for your family. Starting early is critical, as is knowing how to find resources and where to go for assistance when you need it.
