- 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 2015, we are honored to welcome Saladmaster 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 evaluations

- 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 2014 class printed in Military Transition News.
