I'm wrapping up 10 weeks of Joint Staff Officer Training, focusing on decision making and critical thinking. I've encouraged my teammates to consider social networking sites like 48days.net for professional relationship development. Any other suggestions?

I'm currently involved in a project examining formal mentorship in the US Armed Forces. Air Force Instructions and Policy Directives require formal mentorship in addition to performance appraisals and feedback. I'm skeptical that this occurs routinely. As Dan releases his book about how to start a Mastermind Group, I'm wondering if groups like this would work in military organizations as a mentorship program. What do you think?

On the 48 Days TAP discussion, I have proposed matching 48 Days Coaches with Veterans searching for work. The idea generated one positive response. If you're interested, post a message and we'll keep you informed of progress.

Vets + Coaching = Jobs

To all Veterans on this special Veteran's Day, Thank You!

If you're struggling with life today is a great day to start feeling better, more like yourself. Being tough doesn't mean you can't ask for help. http://realwarriors.net/multimedia/psas/hopper29.php

Hello all!

Currently transitioning out of the Army in the D.C. metro area. Going to stay in Northern VA. I'm on Linkedin and most of the major sites if you want to connect with me! Also a new member of 48 days. Look forward to meeting new people :)

Hey fellow military people:

I posted the post below in the forum last week, but want to specifically get to you since the site FOR you.  I'd love your stories on there, as anyone who ever served in the military has them.  Thanks for your support.

Hello,

 

First, thanks to Dan for helping me see I CAN create a niche website.  It must be a passion because it never felt like work at all, only pure enjoyment.

 

Also thanks to all those who gave me encouragement and advice the last few months on 48days.net.

 

I would love your feedback on the site.......   http://yourmilitarystory.com

 

Thanks again,

Claudia

Just a note to all on Memorial Day to tell you my experience over the past week. I've been stopped and thanked for my service three times in various settings. I wear an Afghanistan Counter IED patch to stay focused on our efforts there, and a father said to his small daughter, "Look, Afghanistan." Then he said to me, "Thank you for serving."

 

I say to Dylan and Justin, and all other service members and veterans, Thank You for serving. We live in a great country.

Lee

This message is in response to Justin Krakow's posts mainly, but could be beneficial to all I suppose.  I am also active duty Air Force.  I am a weather forecaster and have come to despise my job as well, haha.  It just brings me no happiness or fullfilment at all.  However, I was able to knock out a bachelor's degree and it helped me get through the times when I was really hating my job.  I just finished my bachelor's August of 2010 in Human Resources.  I did about 75% of it online including several classes while I was deployed.  When I started, I didn't have much of an idea what I wanted to get a degree in either.  I just started knocking out the general ed classes that I could, and once I had a good number of classes under my belt, I was able to decide on a degree path.  This definitely helped with my EPRs as well because of the great amount of self-improvement that was going on with pursuing the bachelor's degree.  Anyway, I've been through exactly how you're feeling right now.  My wife and I have decided that we're going to get out of the military after this enlistment and begin doing work the she and I both love.  So, it can be done man, but getting that bachelor's degree definitely increased my confidence in my decision to get out of the military.
