    American Corporate PartnersAmerican Corporate Partners (ACP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in their transition from the armed services to the civilian workforce. With the help of business professionals nationwide, ACP offers veterans tools for long-term career development through mentoring, career counseling, and networking opportunities. With the belief that one-on-one relationships enhance an atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect, and support, ACP aims to strengthen the connection between corporate America and veteran communities. Programs include: ACP AdvisorNet is an online network of volunteer Advisors who commit to sharing their business expertise and advice with military veterans and their immediate family. Veterans can post questions related to the following areas:
    • Employment,
    • Career Development,
    • Small Business.
    ACP’s Veteran Mentoring Program connects Veteran Protégés with Corporate Mentors for a yearlong mentorship. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Protégés define the goals of their mentorship together. Mentors have a wide variety of professional expertise, including defense, education, finance, insurance, information technology, logistics, management, manufacturing, marketing and retail. Over the course of the year, all matched pairs should have at least 12 significant discussions regarding the Protégé’s career objectives. These discussions can focus on topics ranging from résumé building and interview skills to networking and small business development. Mentors may participate in all of the discussions personally or arrange for colleagues to meet with their Protégé. ACP has developed two program options in order to offer mentorships to veterans across the country:
    • National - ACP's National Program supports remote mentorships between participants who share similar career interests, but do not live within local proximity. We ask Mentors and Protégés to be flexible regarding the location of their mentorship. Participants in long-distance mentorships communicate by phone, e-mail, and/or videoconference.
    • Local- ACP's Local Programs operate in cities with high densities of participants. Because we aim to connect you with someone whose career objectives and professional experience aligns with yours, we may not always have an ideal candidate in your area. If your location lends itself to a local mentorship, we will do our best to pair you with a participant nearby.

    United States Army Warrior Transition Command - Warrior Care and Transition ProgramThe U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command (WTC) is the lead proponent for the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP), which evaluates and treats wounded, ill and injured Soldiers through a comprehensive, Soldier-centric process of medical care, rehabilitation, professional development and achievement of personal goals. Major elements of the WCTP include:
    • Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) - provide command and medical management assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army.
    • U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) – Assists severely wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans and their Families throughout their recovery and transition.
    • Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP) – The CTP is a six-part multidisciplinary process that includes an individual recovery plan that the Soldier customizes and builds with the support of his/her Triad of Care and Family.
    • Triad of Care – Each WTU Soldier benefits from a squad leader, nurse case manager, and primary care manager assigned to a WTU.
    • Interdisciplinary Team – The Triad of Care is augmented by an interdisciplinary team of health care and transition specialists who work together to coordinate and optimize the care and transition of each individual Soldier.
    • Career and Education – WTUs help the Soldier establish short-term and long-term career goals and identify opportunities to enhance existing skills or develop new ones based on the Soldier’s transition track, whether it is remaining in the Army or transitioning from the Army to civilian status.
    • Internships – Helps Soldiers prepare for civilian employment by helping identify internship opportunities to augment a Soldier's transition.
    • Health and Recovery – Provides helpful resources on access to medical care and adaptive reconditioning options to help Soldiers achieve their health, fitness, wellness, and resilience goals.
    • Understanding IDES – WTUs assist Soldiers in understanding and maneuvering the U.S. Army Physical Disability Agency’s (USAPDA) Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES). IDES includes the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) and Physical Evaluation Board (PEB), which determine whether or not wounded, ill and injured Soldiers can continue to perform their duties with their medical condition(s).
    • Access to SFAC and Other Resources – Soldier and Family Assistance Centers (SFACs) are located at most MTFs to serve Soldiers and their Families. The SFACs offer most of the services available throughout the installation in a central location and can coordinate other services as-needed.

    Veterans of Foreign Wars - Operation UplinkAs the largest organization of combat veterans, the VFW knows the importance of keeping military families in touch. That's why in 1996 the VFW launched its Operation Uplink program - a calling program for deployed service members that provides free phone time to active-duty military personnel and hospitalized veterans. Operation Uplink initially provided calling cards to deployed and hospitalized troops, but on Mother's Day in 2006, due to the growing popularity of the program, and thanks to the generosity of corporate donors like Sport Clips Haircuts and Harleysville Insurance, the program began hosting "Free Call Days." The program is the only one of its kind, providing at least three designated days each month when deployed service members can make FREE phone calls home to the U.S. from their Morale, Welfare & Recreation (MWR) center or military DSN line. Free Call Days have provided more than 7.5 million free connections for service members and their families. Veterans of Foreign WarsVeterans of Foreign Wars Foundation
