The USO Pathfinder transition program based at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, offers best-in-class services to those exiting the military. Its one-of-a-kind approach includes:

Worldwide access – Within the global network of USO’s more than 200 locations – located on military installations, airports and in military communities – we offer on-demand services through digital channels and the USO’s virtual, mobile-responsive Action Plan app. Additionally, USO Pathfinder services are co-located with USO centers at 15 locations across the U.S.

Personalized assistance – USO Pathfinder employs scouts, individuals who work one-on-one with service members and their families to help them achieve their personal and professional transition goals by building an individualized action plan.

Powerful, on-demand tools – In partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring our Heroes, the USO offers an app-based Resume Engine that accurately translates military experience into a powerful civilian resume that is then connected to a vast network of companies that are seeking to hire service members. Additionally, the USO and Veterati provide digital mentorship on demand to service members seeking the critical advice, assistance and connection to help job seekers excel in their career journey.

Partnerships – USO Pathfinder is connected to long-standing partners in communities across the nation. Its “network of networks” is made up of strategic and supporting partnerships with best-in-class public and private entities that provide services and resources for individuals to use both on a national and local level.
