NAS Whidbey Island is the next stop for the USAA-sponsored Military Transition Seminar (MTS), where the Afterburner and USAA teams will deliver a free career planning seminar to current and former service members, military spouses and Department of Defense employees. The day-long transition preparation course will be held at Whidbey Island’s Officer’s Club from 0800 PST to 1700 PST, registration opens at 0715 PST.

The MTS program is developed and delivered by Afterburner’s team of current and former elite military professionals, giving the course a unique, first-hand perspective on military transition. MTS supports the current mandated transition preparation training known as the Transition Assistance Program (TAP), complementing the curriculum with a hands-on, strategic career planning workshop.

USAA has supported the MTS program since 2014, during which time the course has been delivered at 15 installations for nearly 2300 participants who created over 2000 transition plans. The partnership, which grows in popularity each year, is a testament to both organizations’ commitment to and support of veteran initiatives.

“Transitioning from the military to civilian life can put a strain on military members and their families,” said Renee Sokolowski, assistant vice president of Military Transition Program at USAA. “Bringing best-in-class transition seminars to the military community highlights our commitment to making life easier for those who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom and preserve our way of life.”

The Afterburner and USAA teams will return to Fort Bragg, Fort Drum, Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Fort Bliss to complete the 2016 MTS schedule, with tentative deliveries at Germany-based U.S. installations in June.
