Each year, over 100,000 transitioning Soldiers leave Army active duty service and look for opportunities in the civilian sector. In fiscal year 2016, Army transition participant surveys showed that 56% of transitioning Soldiers planned to seek employment opportunities in the civilian sector.
From March 28 – 30, 2017, the Army hosted a training symposium at The Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. The symposium trained Soldier for Life – Transition Assistance Program Center staff and stakeholders on various topics related to the program, focusing on the theme of “Transition to Connection.”
