Great question! I would recommend assigning a mentor to help with initial navigation through the company’s culture. I’d also suggest taking the time to learn about the reserves and USERRA laws for those still serving. Finally, don’t forget about spouses who often have to put their careers on hold to follow the service members assignment or manage the household during deployments

Www.esgr.mil has great resources

We did a veteran’s small business workshop in cooperation with the VA and California department of VA to help veteran entrepreneurs with actual issues they’re facing. It was really cool. Feel free to pm me if you want to talk more
