Everyone will leave the Army at some point. For a minority of Service personnel (SP) who are compulsory discharged, this will be outside of their control. However, the vast majority of SP have control of this very important decision. It is vital that SP have a full understanding of the life they will be leaving behind, their personal responsibilities as a citizen in society and be fully aware and equipped to succeed in their new life.
The key to a successful return to civilian life is to continuously plan and make provision for it throughout a military career. This is best achieved by the accumulation of Life Skills and Personal Development which will enable SP (and their families) to make the necessary physical and emotional adjustments and have the resilience to overcome the challenges that most Service leavers (SLs) will face. A robust and viable transition plan is essential in advance of making the decision to leave the Service.
