Since The Transition launched in 2019, we’ve experienced tremendous growth and helped countless veterans with their transition into civilian life by offering advice, resources, and support in our book and our blog.
Along with our book, we’ve been able to attend multiple speaking engagements, veterans events, and our own Larry Wallace was elected the first African American Mayor of Manor, Texas.
Here are a few highlights from the last year.
Tarrant County College
“Honoring the Past; Committed to the Future” Veteran’s Week.
The 2019 National Minority Veterans Summit, the first ever minority Veterans summit.
Focused on the needs and issues important to minority Veterans. Attendees heard from Veterans Affairs senior leaders, participated in breakout sessions focused on employment, mental health, entrepreneurship and more. Plenary sessions will focus on VA care and benefits, partner organizations, and special “Voice of the Veteran” panels. Hon. Larry Wallace Jr., Ph.D. participated on the Voice of the Veteran Panel.
