Phil Smith, Col USMC (ret), joins us to discuss transitioning as a “retiree” which is different. Phil’s advice:
(1) Do your VA medical screening while on Active Duty.
(2) Plan Financially!
(3) Work with the VA, you gotta do a little bit of work — copies of your records and your DD214.
(4) Network through LinkedIn!
Will Costantini, Col USMC (ret), joins us to discuss Professional Military Education. HOWEVER… we get side tracked and talk:
(1) Small Unit Discipline
(2) “Barracks” vs. “Dormitory”
(3) Do they join us or do we join them?
(4) What is the message of discipline?
