For over 75 years, the United Services Organization (USO) has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, & their families throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
But, how is the USO actively helping service-members make a smooth military to civilian transition?
The USO Transition 360 Alliance
The USO Transition 360 Alliance. This alliance brings together top organizations to help military personnel plan their future, pursue a new career, and strengthen their family. The goal is to cover every angle of a military family’s transition into civilian life when their service ends.
The USO has partnered with Hire Heroes USA, The Comfort Crew for Military Kids, Stronger Families and RallyPoint/6 (RP/6) to form a comprehensive menu of programming for everyone from new and pending veterans seeking new careers to young children from military families facing yet another move.

How can Transition 360 Alliance Help Me?
“The USO has brought these groups together to combine the very best of what each of us has to offer America’s transitioning military families, on a scale that no single organization could achieve alone,”- USO CEO and President J.D. Crouch II.
These resources truly address every aspect of life: relationships, children & family, employment & career, and community. The best part: These issues aren’t being addressed on a broad level. It’s specific to the local community you are entering.
The USO formed a strategic partnership with RP/6, an organization dedicated to connecting transitioning service members and their families to opportunities in the private sector after military service. Through their program, a Scout will help you create a plan catered to you in our specific community. Your assigned Scout will stick with you through the transition to ensure you meet your objectives.
Military to Civilian Transition: Key to Success
It’s so important for service-members to know that they are not in this transition alone. More than that, don’t try to go at it alone. Seeking help and guidance is not seen as a weakness. It’s actually incredibly smart! There are programs like the USO Transition 360 Alliance that are experienced in the military to civilian transition process. Learn from them, and start your path to success in the civilian world!
