Featuring a Foreword by Salvatore A. Giunta, Medal of Honor Recipient

The Military Advantage, 2013 Edition, written by Terry Howell, Managing Editor for Benefits for Military.com is the essential annual reference guide to military and veteran’s benefits. Published in partnership with Military.com, the nation's largest military membership organization with over 10 million members and its parent company, Monster.com, the nation’s largest career and job website, this latest edition is the most reliable benefits guide for the over 30 million Americans who have answered the call to serve in the military. These valuable benefits include billions in scholarships, educational benefits, home loan guarantees, and military discounts.

Due to the drawdown of forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and required budget cuts, the Department of Defense plans on reducing military forces by as many as 100,000 troops over the next five years.  In response, the 2013 edition of the Military Advantage will focus on the rights and benefits available to assist service members, veterans and their families as they transition to civilian life in record numbers.

The new 2013 Edition will include these key topics to help make the most of the military experience:

  • Transition Assistance Program Changes
  • New Veteran Employment Resources
  • New VRAP GI Bill and Other GI Bill Updates
  • New Spouse and Family Resources
  • TRICARE Fee Increases
  • Helpful tips on Preparing for Transition
  • Changes to Military Pay and Survivor Benefits

With this emphasis on making a successful transition to civilian life, this well-established guide will be even more relevant to active duty military, veterans, retirees, and their family members.

Terry Howell is the Managing Editor for Military.com. He is a retired Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer and disabled veteran. In his role as a Coast Guard Career Development Advisor, Terry provided career, finance, education, and benefits counseling to service members and their families. Terry earned both his Bachelor’s and MBA at Corban University using tuition assistance and his GI Bill benefits to help cover the cost.

~ Praise for The Military Advantage 2013 ~

“Should be a part of every community library collection, every military assistance organization’s reference collection, and essential reading for active military personnel and veterans.”
