SET UP FOR SUCCESS
LEADERSHIP, RESILIENCE, TEAM BUILDING
BUY A BOOK FOR A SOLDIER
Nearly 250,000 veterans transition into the private sector annually. The first 90-days of transition can be extremely challenging and the current systems do not sufficiently prepare veterans for their exit from military service.
The goal behind our Buy a Book for a Soldier program is to get a copy of "Set Up for Success" into the hands of every transitioning veteran and help place them on a path towards progress.
You can assist us in contributing to that mission by purchasing a copy today for a transitioning soldier. We will hand deliver these books to military installations across the U.S.
