Join the Raider Project for two days at the Wilmington Convention Center for a weekend of networking while gaining the tools necessary to help each other succeed in the next mission.
Entering the job market today requires an individual demonstrating the maturity, dedication, enthusiasm, and articulation to stand apart from the rest. Military experience alone does not carry the weight that it used to; this stresses the need to develop the proper approach to succeeding both professionally and personally.
Traditionally, transition courses cater to those requiring assistance at the most elemental level (i.e. resume-building, personal finance, and business attire). Addressing the need for further information beneficial to success, our seminar focuses on the demands of careers, lifestyle, personal / team training, and both physiological and psychological health. Recognizing that each individual transition is unique, the participants are able to ask our eleven guest speakers questions and get immediate feedback.

The word Post Traumatic Stress DISORDER is ridiculous. I understand the Post Traumatic Stress part but the DISORDER? Why? Does having PTS really mean you have a disorder. Maybe to a clinical psychologists who refer to the DSM IV to diagnose a certain mental health issue it can be a disorder. However, the word disorder used for veterans can cripple your mental stability.
I hope this letter reaches you in relative peace. I am Fritz Sleigher and just retired out of MARSOC after 22 years in our beloved Corps. Thank you for the retirement note. I served as an 02, 0369, 0311, and 0317 with a smattering of other MOS’ at various units. I retired as a Gunny, which will come into play shortly.
I watched your video and feel your pain. Although we have never met, I am certain that you feel each loss of life and are just as confused as to why Marines are taking their lives at an alarming rate. I’ll never understand the monumental burden of command you bear, but I am certain we both share the feeling of loss, guilt, and confusion after each suicide.
The BLUF on suicide is this: The current culture of the Corps conflicts with itself and creates an environment where those in need feel even more secluded. I re-posted your article on FB, and several peers (recently retired enlisted combat vets) sing the same tune: The Corps let them down.
