NEW YORK, New York – May 29, 2020 – As COVID-19 gripped the world, many military service members, who were slated to leave the service soon, were severely impacted by the pandemic as workdays were reduced and many were told to stay at home. Additionally, DOD installations around the world put on hold their critical Transition Assistance Programs (TAP), which are crucial part of a military member’s transition out of the military and into the corporate world. The temporary halt of TAP programs left those who were transitioning out of the service with less than optimal transition resources — resources they needed to be successful in the private sector.
Disaster Recovery International (DRI) Foundation is committed to helping our veterans succeed. To do our part, the Foundation has created a Veterans Outreach Program to help our Veterans realize their dreams and help both themselves and their respective organizations achieve great success as they transition into the professions of emergency response, crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.
