The transition process can be long, difficult, and stressful. Keeping in tune with OSD’s goal of helping however possible, Heroic Forces provides transition assistance that is focused on aiding each transitioning service member with exactly what they need. By keeping the seminars to less than 4 service members, Heroic Forces reps are able to focus on each attendees needs and help develop a transition plan that fits their specific goals.
Regional Director and Heroic Forces coordinator Chance Mcpheron met with two airmen from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to host our first Heroic Forces seminar in the greater Seattle area! With one of the airmen nearing medical retirement, Mcpheron was able to asses his situation, provide insight into what he should expect throughout the rest of his transition, and is also working hand in hand with the airmen to ensure he does everything possible to assist in a successful transition to the civilian world after more than 10 years of service.
Speaking of the program, Mcpheron noted “Heroic Forces is more than just meeting up and giving some advice. Everything about our program is focused on a personal and unique experience. From the moment you make contact, our goal is to make your life easier and less stressful. We meet at a convenient time and location for the service member, then spend about an hour discussing where they’re at, what their goals are after the military, and how to reach them as efficiently as possible. We don’t just sit down with you and throw a ton of information at you either. Once you’ve attended a seminar, we stay in contact with you throughout your transition. Whether it be resume building, VA claims, or just some help settling in to a new city, we will do whatever we can to make your life easier.”
Now that Heroic Forces is up and running in the Seattle area, we are issuing a blanket invitation to all service members nearing the end of their military careers. Regardless of rank, branch, or time in service, if you served your country, we want to help you transition back into the civilian world when the time comes.
