  3.  Be aware of civilian life to better relate to the community after retirement.


  •  “We all need to be ready to return to society to do great things and not get out there and ask for handouts.” -Jarrod H.Smith
  •  “No matter how much money, resources, time, and effort I put into this, if I can save one veteran's life, then it's a success.”- Jarrod H.Smith
  •  “I believe that it takes 5 years to set yourself up to get this right. If we have a structure, direction, and coach/god holding you to take care of your business throughout the military service then, we can send every active service duty member back to society to be a healthy contributing member.” - Jarrod H.Smith
  •   “Until we can get ourselves right and get right with our identities and who it is that we are as core beings without our rank and uniforms is going to be really, really hard.”- Jarrod H.Smith
  •   “We need to be real about the veteran suicide crisis, and I believe to the very depths of my being that it is a mixture of poor medical use during service that leads to poor health when we leave, and it's a part of not being financially prepared.”- Jarrod H.Smith
  •   “The most important thing a service member can do from a U.S. vet wealth perspective is recognizing today, right now, that they are in a mission to transition out of uniform.”- Jarrod H.Smith
