It is truly unbelievable to watch how an idea can develop into something so real, something that can truly help veterans throughout this country. I was never one to think I have the power to take an idea and get it to a point where people believe in it. It is a fascinating event to witness, and although I’m still in the early stages (yes even after doing this since 2008), each year just keeps getting better and mostly because of you, my supporters.
As we get closer to celebrating the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, I look back at all that has happened with Transitioning Veteran.com. Transitioning Veteran.com is one of few websites who are in the market to help us transitioning veterans with resources, and a market that is so important for as long as the military exists. 2012 will be remembered as the year I felt confident enough that I had prepared myself and Transitioning Veteran.com to take the next step. While the news media continues to take less of an interest in veterans’ issues, I felt this would be the perfect time to take all of this to the next level, and in 2013 Transitioning Veteran Inc. will be born.
Seeing Transitioning Veteran.com support grow this past year gave me the confidence to walk into my local Small Business Admin. office to seek support. Not only did I get linked up with a great mentor, but her nephew as well is a veteran. Everywhere I go, so many people I speak to know or have a veteran in their family. So many veterans today struggle with the decision to separate from the military or reenlist thanks to an awful economy.
The support I get from fellow past and present veterans reassures me the importance of what I’m doing. I look forward to 2013.
