Today, Mr. John R. Campbell, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy
is testifying before the Senate Veterans Armed Services Committee on our efforts to improve the transition of our Service members.
Mr. Campbell has stated that "Education and training are keys to obtaining meaningful employment and a better quality of life after a Service member retires or separates from the military. Service members are encouraged to take full advantage of all educational opportunities and training programs afforded while they are on active duty, such as tuition assistance and the Post 9/11 GI Bill. The Department also focuses on providing separating Service members useful information and assistance in all aspects of the transition process, including preparation for post-military employment. It is crucial to the transition process that Service members take full advantage of their military experience in order to reach and achieve their full employment potential after they leave the military."
