Transitions

Military life is full of changes. You travel for training, move to new duty stations and deploy—often many times.

You may be getting ready for your first move or your third deployment. Wherever you are, each new stage in your military career brings new challenges. These challenges could be moving to a new town, finding housing, arranging childcare or organizing finances. Dealing with these can put stress on you, your family and friends.

Fortunately, proper preparation can ease you through transitions. Our available resources can help you with deployment support, reintegration, moving and more.
