As air crew member during the Korean conflict and later during the 1960s as an Air Force recruiter (two careers I did not choose), I had difficulty understanding how a member of the military could be an active participant in the career decision-making process. It was after the close of the Viet Nam war when I served as the director of the Veterans Administration Guidance Center in San Jose, California that I was able to help veterans take active control of their careers.


Please share the ideas in this publication with your colleagues who work with veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce.
