Operation Reinvent ‘embraces’ women veterans from the time they leave military service, until they have successfully reinvented their lives and transitioned to a new normal… as happy, healthy, productive civilians in the workplace and in the community. During this process, which does not have an expiration date, Operation Reinvent does not let her fall between cracks or lose courage. It guides, mentors, educates and makes the transition process smoother, less confusing and less scary for the women who sacrificed so much in serving us all.
