- The Essential Military-to-Civilian Transition Resource

The Top 40 Under 40 Military


Each November in honor of Veterans Day, Military Transition News, the worldwide military base newspaper, will release its Top 40 Under 40 Military edition which will endeavor to recognize the top service members who are serving or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. In 2014, we are honored to welcome AdjusterPro as the presenting sponsor for this award.


The criteria for consideration are as follows:

- Serving or has served in the

     U.S. Armed Forces

- Less than 40 years of age

- Exemplary military

     performance as per their

     assignments and


- Received or expect to receive

     an Honorable discharge


If you meet the criteria, join the appropriate nominating group on LinkedIn to be included for consideration in this year's Top 40 Under 40 Military recognition:

A distinguished committee selects the finalists and winners from the nominating pools. Finalists are then asked to submit additional biographical information to the committee for consideration.

Congratulations to the 2013 class printed in Military Transition News.
