The More You Know: Transitioning From Military Life
Kelly Ryan is American Military University’s Midwest Education Coordinator, which means she spends her days working with servicemembers and their families who are making the change from military to civilian life. For some, the transition can be discouraging as they’re faced with new decisions to make and new paths to follow.
As Kelly notes in this informative article for Military Spouse, many of those decisions involve education: where to go to school, what to study, how to sign up, and, of course, how to pay for it. Thankfully, transitioning veterans and their families have support.
