Operation Reinvent

OPERATION REINVENT ‘embraces’ women veterans from the time they leave military service, until they have successfully reinvented their lives and transitioned to a new normal… as happy, healthy, productive civilians in the workplace and in the community. During this process, which does not have an expiration date, OPERATION REINVENT does not let her fall between cracks or lose courage. It guides, mentors, educates and makes the transition process smoother, less confusing and less scary for the women who sacrificed so much in serving us all.

OPERATION REINVENT advocates for women veterans who right now have a 66% higher unemployment rate and are 4x more likely to be homeless than their male counterparts.

For women. By women. OPERATION REINVENT is the only full service program exclusively dedicated to women veterans. It contains every step necessary to give women veterans the confidence and the heightened self-esteem that comes from a polished professional image. From a well-constructed resume, winning interview tactics and understanding the language, currency and the culture of their new civilian workplace. And from regular, biweekly, woman veteran-to-woman veteran peer support that is so important to keep going on.
