2. Start preparing financially to pay off bills and build your savings.

3. Schedule medical appointments and document any and all medical ailments. Even if it is minor like allergies.

4. Request copies of your medical records at least three months out and start preparing to file your medical disability claim via a Veteran Service Org like VFW.

5. Research the requirements for any desired career. Ensure you can check off the experience, education, certifications, and any special skills needed. If not seek the additional training/skills.

DESCRIPTION
Stand-Up for Women Vets provides support for women veterans and military women in career transition.
As a woman veteran in transition, you will need more than a resume to ensure a successful transition into the civilian workforce.
We provide (free of charge):
Professional Business Attire
Dress Shoes
Accessories
Make-Overs
Image Consulting
Head-Shots

The purpose of this event is not only to honor the service and sacrifice you have made to this great nation, but to also support our Sisters-in-Arms who are in transition or have transitioned and may need an image boost*.
We realize that some women Veterans, especially single mothers, may find the cost of securing an up-to-date professional wardrobe unattainable.
There will be a drawing for a $500 Macy’s gift card and a light lunch will also be provided.
*Professional services are first come, first serve.
