Service members and veterans are a rich source of talent, leadership, experience, and expertise. They’re a vital part of today’s workforce.

Many are forced to retrain, re-qualify, or start over because the civilian and military systems don’t speak a common language when it comes to skills. A new report offers insight on addressing this disconnect, as well as the steps needed to build better systems that help veterans obtain and develop valuable credentials beyond high school.
