USO T360 program has you in mind
“The only constant in life is change,” as the old saying goes. When you are in the military you deal with change on a scale most civilians can’t even fathom; constantly changing superiors, coworkers and friends; moving from place to place, changing homes and changing communities. The one constant in the equation is family: your family, the US Military family and the USO family - which is never far away and always there to support you whether you’re stuck in the mountains of Afghanistan or posted to an island off the coast of Korea.
The USO wants to help you transition to life in Korea, so be sure to stop by your nearest center as soon as you arrive on the peninsula. There’s a lot more to what the USO can do for you than help you get WIFI and make new friends though. The USO has made it a priority to help you and your family deal with the many transitions that impact military families. They have done so through a program they call T360, which is made up of four different elements: Comfort Crew for Military Kids (CCMK), Stronger Families, Hire Heroes and RP/6.
Comfort Crew for Military Kids is about helping children adjust to the new surroundings, as our children are so frequently forced to do. Stronger Families helps couples acquire strategies for productive communication, so they can avoid unproductive shouting and fighting. The USO has also partnered up with Hire Heroes to make sure that you have all the tools you need to land that civilian job. They will work 1-on-1 to develop your resume, get your interviewing skills up to snuff and provide a variety of resources to help you land that civilian job you’re looking for. RP/6 is about connecting service members with the communities they will be settling back into when they separate from the military; personally helping with introductions and connecting them to local resources.
While there are plenty of resources from the USO, they’re all meaningless until you take the first step. Click on that address bar on your device and type USO.org/360 right this minute and learn what’s next today.
