As those who follow my writings about military transition know, the process is often contrary, capricious, confusing, and supremely frustrating. I have been writing about my experiences for nearly two years now, and over that time I have been disappointed to see that the process has not really improved. Transition is still just as consternating as ever, despite millions of dollars spent on the process by both the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration.
I am currently writing a book about my transitional journey, and that is where you come into the picture. I have created a survey in which I am humbly asking every veteran and every military person who is going through transition or has completed transition to participate. I have my own observations and opinions, but as author Eric Herzel once said: “One’s opinion should only be as strong as one’s knowledge on the matter.”
Since I am planning to write much more about transition, I really need to incorporate the collective knowledge of as many of you who have experienced transition in order to make my opinions as fact-based as possible. Will you help?
