CLARKSVILLE, Tennessee—The USO had always been there for Michael Leebarze. But this was pretty clutch.

“[When] I saw the [USO] sign [while driving off-post] I thought, ‘Hey, maybe they would be able to help me out,’ and I could just ask them about job employment opportunities” said Leebarze, who served 15 years int he Army before separating earlier this year. “[But when] I came here [to the USO RP/6 Fort Campbell center] it was unlimited resources.”

Leebarze, who had ambitions to launch a career in the criminal justice/homeland security field, spoke with RP/6 staff members about his resume and transition plan. Several hours of career counseling later, Leebarze left the center with a job interview for a position at the company right next door to the USO center.
