THIS IS A MANDATORY BRIEFING FOR
ALL SOLDIERS LEAVING THE MILITARY!
Your military service has earned you valuable services and benefits. To ensure
you fully understand what you're eligible for and how to obtain them, Congress
enacted Public Law 107-103. This law directed the U.S. Army to provide
transitioning soldiers with Preseparation Counseling. This Preseparation
Briefing is an initial overview that lays the foundation for a smooth transition.
It's an individualized plan and a road map for a successful transition to the
civilian sector. Valuable resources and a wealth of information is made
available to all those who attend.

prior to their ETS date, but the ideal time frame is not less than 6 months prior.

services. Spouses and children of job search age are welcomed as well.
Retirees can begin up to 2 years prior to their retirement date with an ideal time
frame starting at 1 year. Additionally, Army retirees, their spouses and family
members of job search age can use the services for life.
