Reentering civilian life entails major adjustments for the estimated 200,000 who leave the military each year, from finding a place to live to looking for employment, juggling finances or pursuing educational opportunities. Stars and Stripes Transition Guide covers many of the bases to make the shift easier.

New Stars and Stripes Transition Guide offers single-source resource for service members leaving the military.

Stars and Stripes, the independent news source for the U.S. military, publishes its latest Transition Guide on Thursday, May 31, online at and in its European, Pacific and Middle East newspaper editions. The special supplement will also be distributed on many military bases across the United States.

The Stars and Stripes Transition Guide is a compilation of resources — articles on financial matters, education, resume-writing, career fairs and more — specifically designed to help active servicemembers and veterans navigate successfully into a new stage of life.

“There is myriad information available for our servicemembers who are in the process of transitioning,” says Dan Krause, international advertising director at Stars and Stripes.

“The intent of this semi-annual publication is to provide our readers with practical guidance and resources for maneuvering through their next objective; whether it's enrolling in college, finding a job or getting their finances in order. Stars and Stripes’ purpose, as a whole, is to provide valuable information to our military — this guide embodies that mission.”

The Stars and Stripes Transition Guide will also be available as a digital edition online at (Digital Editions/Special Publications) for those who are not presently living or stationed within the print distribution area.
