Dover AFB holds Transition Summit to help service members moving to civilian life

Apr 10, 2018

Dover Air Force Base is hosting a Transition Summit Thursday to help military members who are separating or retiring from the service.

The program runs through the the Airman and Family Readiness Center at DAFB, and the transition assistance program manager Jim Pacer says the goal of the summit is pretty straightforward.


“The intent is to help them get good jobs, get good careers upon getting out of the military; hopefully using their military skill sets they’ve acquired while they’ve been in the military,” Pacer said.


Pacer says the Summit is focused on service members in Dover retiring in the next 18 months.  It will help them update their resume, as well as as offer assistance in transitioning into civilian life.


Pacer says the goal is to connect retiring or separating service members with employers and hiring managers who are committed to hiring veterans and military spouses.
