  • Was kommt nach der US Army? -ein kleiner Leitfaden Beitrag #1
Immer wieder kommen Fragen von Spouses deren Mann in naher Zukunft aus dem US Militaer austritt,bzw in Rente geht.
Typische Fragen sind:

-Wie sieht es aus mit Krankenversicherung waehrend der transition vom military zum civilian life?

-Was fuer VA Benefits gibt es fuer meinen Mann?

-Wie kann sich mein Mann fuer einen Government Job bewerben?

-Hat mein Mann weiterhin Vepflichtungen auch nach seiner aktiven Dienstzeit?

-Wie sieht der Umzug aus? Koennen wir ueberall hinziehen und wird der Umzug vom Militaer bezahlt?

Das sind nur einige der Fragen die aufkommen.

Jeder Soldat der aus dem Dienst scheidet muss einen Transitionprozess durchlaufen. Wir nennen das 'ACAPing'.

Es gibt keine Ausnahmen, wirklich jeder muss da durch und neben mandatory briefings gibt es viele Infomeetings und classes ueber z.b resume writing etc.

Es ist was man daraus macht und ein 'Ich weiss nicht Bescheid, wie der Transitionprozess vor sich geht' ist eigentlich keine gueltige Aussage.

Die erste Anlaufstelle ist diese Website:

http://www.acap.army.mil/

Dort lassen sich eine Menge Resources finden,u.a auch wie so eine separation timeline aussieht.

Wirklich ausfuehrlich wird es aber in diesem wichtigen Pre-Separation Guide....ich wirklich jedem nur empfehlen zumindest mal ein bisschen quer zulesen, nicht alles trifft auf jeden zu und das eine oder andere subject kann man erstmal ueberspringen, aber die Infos in diesem Guide sind sehr wertvoll wie ich finde.

http://www.acap.army.mil/transitioner/presep/PreSepGuide_AD.PDF

Schaut es euch mal an...und auch wenn ihr noch nicht soweit seid, hebt euch den guide,bzw. die website auf.
Der Guide ist uebrigens current auch wenn er von 2007 ist.


Hoffe die Info ist fuer einige hier nuetzlich.


Gruss
Jazz


P.S

Uebrigens sind da noch so einige hilfreiche Tips fuer Menschen die hier in den USA einen Job suchen, bzw in die USA umziehen wollen/muessen.;)
