Challenge: Shedding Military CultureJune 16, 2017 | :
by Jenny Hale
The military lifestyle is engrained into a Soldier from the day they arrive at basic training. The Army teaches its Soldiers how to become leaders, take charge, and make vital decisions. These are all attributes that make Army veterans highly valuable to civilian companies.
However, the transition to civilian life is not easy for all and there are many aspects of military culture that are not received the same in a corporate or civilian workplace setting.
