I'm a US Army veteran and a career coach helping vets transition between careers. I'm spending my Memorial Day weekend helping to bridge the civilian-military divide. AMA!
Good Morning Reddit!
I'm Bobby Wise, a US Army veteran and a career coach for Veterans Forward at the National Abe Network. Our organization is a non-profit workforce development agency committed to helping vets conduct a more effective job search.
Today I'll be marching 22 miles along Chicago's lakefront with hundreds of other vets to honor the fallen and raise awareness about the 22 veterans who commit suicide every day. Since that gives me about eight hours to kill, I'll also be here all day answering your questions about the job market, veterans transition, and the civilian-military divide. AMA!
EDIT: Well, it's not a proper ruck match without a little rain. I'll start answering again after the rain lets up and my touch screen becomes a bit more effective.
EDIT 2: Getting into the home stretch and the sweat is getting into my eyes pretty good. I'll be answering the rest of your questions from my laptop at home. Thanks for all the great comments and I look forward to working with everyone who reached out to me in private messages. Enjoy your weekend!
