JR,I work in a transition office in Korea. Here are a couple of things that your office will love you for.1. Break out the "Love Me" book. We joke about it, but I have had to scramble when people's files were shipped to God knows where by the Personnel Office. 2. Make sure your unit does a retirement award in time. There is little that ruins this than having them blow you off. 3. Make sure you clear everything you need to, including the physical. I've had to hold people back from TDY because they didn't have the physical (Maybe because I am in Korea this is harder, but it still needs to be done.)4. Hit the VA if you haven't yet. They have more programs than you can shake a retirement order at. www.va.gov5. Read the book From Air Force Blue to Corporate Gray. It really talks about civilianizing your vocabulary. I walk a line between both worlds as a civilian, but most civies don't understand acronym talk. 6. When you put on the gray suit, lose the low quarters. :) This is an image thing. Some people don't have a problem, but small things can make it look to people like you are still a Msgt, and not someone who will fit into their company. (There are always exceptions).Actually, there are many more things. I worked in the Transition Program for about 10 years, so I will stop now, this is getting long. Let me know if you would like some help. Fredinseoul
