These are just a few of the emotions that veterans report feeling during and after their transition from the military.
You’ve been through a lot and are transitioning to a different life. A life outside of the military. A life with new roles, new people…one that requires you to find new ways to communicate, new ways to take care of yourself and figure out how to market yourself in the civilian workforce.
Are you struggling with loneliness? Do you feel that your new job lacks purpose or is far below your capabilities? Are you struggling to communicate with your friends, family and civilian co-workers? Do you miss interacting with your military family?
Did you know that despite a low 3.7% veteran unemployment rate in 2017, nearly 32% of veterans were underemployed? In fact, only 2 in 10 veterans stay in the first post-military job for more than 2 years and 57% leave that job within the first year. Why do they leave?

There are many factors that go into a veteran’s post-military career success. You may think that if you only had a better resume or LinkedIn profile that your prospects would improve. Although both of those would help, this is truly a multi-faceted issue that needs to be tackled on several fronts. You've found that solution, it's Operation: Connect. Our membership site is the most flexible and accessible resource to have during the ups and downs of this transition and provides the military community you are accustomed to.
On top of the stress of entering the post-military world, you may be facing emotional challenges of feeling lonely, disconnected, different, unhappy or anxious.
While no emotion is good or bad, holding on to certain emotions for too long can wreak havoc on your body and overall health. Not to mention make you, and possibly the ones you love, miserable.
Operation: Connect will help you learn ways to manage your stress and get yourself on the track to greater happiness and fulfillment.

Operation: Connect's health coaching will help you gain sustainable lifestyle changes, achieve greater self-awareness of your body, emotions and choices while also managing the impact of stress on your health.
Career satisfaction is an important factor in our health. However, many veterans don't feel fulfilled in their post-military career. How about you? Are you happy with your current employment situation? Do you feel frustrated and stuck? Are you using your skills? Do you feel underemployed?

We will guide you through the best practices of navigating your post-military career so you can find employment, advance your career and find work that is fulfilling.
Are you having challenges integrating into the civilian workforce and fitting into their new workplace culture? This can be a challenge for many veterans.
