In the military, scouts are the commander's eyes and ears on the battlefield. When information about the enemy is needed, they call on the scouts. A scout has deep knowledge of the area and potential pitfalls, as well as advance information on key contacts and players.
Through our focus area Advancing Impact via Service Networks, Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is facilitating the integration of military and veteran services into existing direct-service programs and organizations in order to increase impact. Operation Scout: One Source to Success works with program partners so veterans can make their reintegration journey with relevant support unique to their needs.
In addition to the training and technical support we are providing partner organizations, veterans are able to connect with Operation Workforce Development as well as using the Dixon Center/Prudential Financial Wellness Portal. This portal provides veterans and their families access to information on key financial topics such as managing day-to-day expenses, savings, and investments, and protecting for the future. The site contains educational articles, videos, infographics, and interactive tools for self-assessments, budgeting, and life insurance needs.
You can learn more about the challenges of transitioning from active service and our work addressing the issue during our Podcast Service Before Self Episode 005: Transitioning Successfully with Brian Niswander.
In this episode Dixon Center VP of Programs and Services, Colonel (Ret.) Sam Whitehurst, your host, is joined by Brian Niswander, the executive director and founder of Military-Transition.org. Military-Transition.org is an organization that is dedicated to providing information and resources to not only transitioning military members but to military spouses, veterans, and also to employers that want to hire others associated with the military.
