Stars and Stripes reports that by the end of 2013 troops leaving the military will go through a five- to seven-day reverse boot camp covering job skills, personal finances and veterans benefits under a new initiative announced by President Barack Obama. The new program called Transition Goals Planning Success, or Transition GPS, will replace the military's Transition Assistance Program. The new five-day transition curriculum will cover lessons in basic budgeting tips, resume preparation, dealing with family adjustment issues, translating military skills into a civilian environment and post-service benefits. For more information on the new Transition GPS Program, visit the White House website.
