USO COVID-19 Response: In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, our USO Pathfinder® locations are strictly adhering to guidance from military installation commands and abiding by CDC guidance on health safety practices regarding center operations.
We remain steadfast in our mission to support transitioning service members and military spouses. There have been minimal disruptions to one-on-one Pathfinder services, as we have shifted Scout meetings to virtual delivery. Program registration remains open with no disruptions to that process.
Transition Resources for Service Members & Military Spouses
An estimated 200,000-plus service members transition out of the military each year. Each Transition from military to civilian life is unique, and USO Pathfinder® is there to help service members and military spouses through the process. Whether an individual needs help finding a civilian job that suits their skills and interest, securing financial stability, researching education options, taking advantage of their GI Bill, utilizing their VA Home Loan or any other veteran programs, maintaining family strength and personal wellness through the process, or more - participants will get a personalized Action Plan and one-on-one support from a USO Pathfinder Scout. Scouts support service members and family members up to one year before their transition and ensure continuity of care by extending support up to one year beyond the service member’s date of separation. Scouts also support military spouses throughout the many transitions they face during their family’s time in service. Through the USO’s vast network of networks, Scouts connect individuals directly to best-in-class public and private resources across the nation that offer relevant services to transitioning service members and military spouses.
