In addition to financial assistance, servicemembers intending to pursue their career after separation from the armed forces have a wealth of resources available to them. This includes the Transition Assistance Program (TAP), which is offered by every branch of the military.
TAP was redesigned in 2013 to be more cohesive, modular and outcome-based. This was accomplished by implementing the Transition Goals, Plans, Success (GPS) curriculum, which follows a new model that begins preparing servicemembers for transition months before discharge. It also provides numerous “touch points” during active duty that help align servicemembers’ military careers with their civilian goals.
The curriculum covers subjects such as:
Once servicemembers complete TAP they are better able to make informed decisions, access the benefits that are available to them, and control the direction of their personal and professional lives.
