The military transition process has come a long a way since the Greatest Generation was returning home from WWII. Back then military members coming back from service received a small booklet called “Going Back to Civilian Life” published by the War and Navy Departments.
While at an estate sale in Michigan, my brother-in-law (a USAF veteran) came across an original military transition guide booklet from 1945. He bought it for me for $5 – thanks, Darrell! Having a piece of military transition history… priceless.
Below are images of some of the pages from the 1945 booklet. They packed a lot of helpful information into 90 pages, but it’s good to know that transition assistance has advanced by leaps and bounds in the 70+ years since this was published. I’m pleased to be part of the Corporate Gray team that continues to help with this progression.
