A VA encourages all separating service members to contact their respective Transition Centers to determine when the VA Transition Assistance Briefings are scheduled. These briefings provide information which will help you make the transition to civilian life easier by identifying many of the VA benefits available to you. Please see Department of Defense transition portal web site at http://www.defense.gov/personneltransition/military-personnel.aspx.

For more information regarding services available to returning Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve service members of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom visit http://www.oefoif.va.gov/
