Veterans are distinct group of individuals who put serving others before themselves. No matter which branch of the armed forces we’ve served, we gained experience and overcame challenges that many civilians have not. Now, that we are moving forward, there are additional challenges that we face and it is great to have such a knowledgeable organization such as SouthWestern Veterans Business Resource Center to help veterans navigate through resources, networking opportunities, entrepreneurship and employment.
I am sure you can agree with me that the civilian sector is a very different world outside of the military. One of the many obvious challenges is finding the right information to assist you in getting from point A to point B.
Many of us probably just checked out of the military, never giving a second thought about simple things we should have done, should do and still can do to make our lives a little bit easier. How important is it to have some sort of mentorship in place that is tailored to your specific needs to address seeking employment or a better understanding of available VA benefits?
Do you know the purpose of making sure to have a copy of your medical records? Do you know where to obtain a copy of your medical records? What about the benefits of becoming a reservist or starting a veteran owned business?
Do yourself a favor and reach out to the SouthWestern Veterans Business Resource Center. I can assure you will find the benefits of finding the answers to these questions and more.
