Nonprofit organization distributing print, PDF, mobi and iPhone versions
ORLANDO, Fla., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The tens of thousands of American servicemembers returning home from places like Iraq and Afghanistan face new challenges in transitioning to civilian life and new careers at home. InCharge Debt Solutions ("InCharge"), a nonprofit organization devoted to financial literacy with a long history of service to America's military, is attempting to relieve some of that pressure by addressing where our country's heroes can find the help they need to re-adjust to life as a civilian.
In its new book, Where Do I Go From Here?, InCharge offers tips to meeting the challenges they face during a tough transition back to a world that may not be as familiar as when they were deployed. "Businesses change, skills and requirements for various jobs change, the economy has been in flux, and the vets may be not be as 'tuned in' to the realities of today's civilian life," said Etta Money, InCharge's President.
Available in print, PDF, mobi and iPhone formats, InCharge's transition guide includes articles on translating skills into civilian terms, planning a civilian career, transitioning to civilian service, and life after service. It features a budget worksheet and transitions resource directory.

"We're excited about Where Do I Go From Here?," said Shawn Walsh, InCharge's Director of Outreach who has led the organization's efforts to support military groups like Yellow Ribbon, American Legion and others in an effort to help servicemembers meet their financial literacy and life skill challenges. "InCharge is working hard to ensure that every member of the military receives one of these and we would be happy to hear from any organization that would like free copies for their veterans."
