Since I have started the transition from military life to civilian life, I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support I have received. I am totally astonished that people would take time out to wish me well and offer me advice.
Being in the Army for so long I have become reliant on the way of life and the security that the military offers. Making the massive leap not only into a different career, but also one where I am running my own business is extremely daunting.
It has been humbling to receive phone calls, emails and messages mostly from veterans offering me advice. I never thought for one second that people would do that. It is reassuring to realise that there is life outside of green uniform, and also that there is a support network.
Thank you to all those that have made contact, It has been good to talk with each and everyone of you. Thank you for all your sound advice.
