This dissertation investigates the Transition Assistance Program and its effectiveness in preparing United States Veterans for post-military civilian life. Using a mixed-methods approach, the study combines qualitative and quantitative data collection to provide comprehensive insights into Veterans' transition experiences, needs, and expectations. The research addresses the limited understanding of Veterans' perceptions of the Transition Assistance Program and highlights the need for comprehensive assessment. It includes online questionnaires to capture Veterans' perspectives. Key findings reveal challenges faced by Veterans during transition and emphasize the need for customization and robust resources. Recommendations propose integrating various technologies to aid Veterans during and after their transition. In conclusion, this study illuminates the Transition Assistance Program's efficacy and proposes innovative ways to support Veterans during their transition to civilian life. It provides valuable insights for policymakers and stakeholders to enhance Veterans' transition experiences.
