Separating? Think About Your Education Options

Asian professional

AAFMAA partners with multiple organizations that promote the advancement of Veterans. Our partnership with the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) provides AAFMAA Members with complimentary access to a variety of products and services tailored to the military community. One of those benefits is a job board and a resume critique service provided by Boots to Books. Through this service, you and your family members can obtain educational assistance and guidance, certifications to propel your post-military career, and employment opportunities.  

PM-ProLearn, another AAFMAA partner, offers guidance and coursework in project management and other courses to set you on a path to success for your goals post-military. American Corporate Partners (ACP) connects post-9/11 Veterans and military spouses with corporate professionals (Mentors) for customized mentorships in planning your next career. These partners, and more, assist Veterans who are transitioning out of the military.  

There are many educational benefits available to Veterans. Hopefully, you have made use of some of them while in service, but planning to use your benefits after separation will help further your career goals as well as propel you toward financial independence.  Please visit for a wealth of information about your VA education benefits, and don’t forget to access your state-level education resources as well.
