About 1,200 soldiers were ordered and urged by Fort Bragg, North Carolina, brass to prepare for their future mission: transition to a civilian job. This sprawling Army post was part of an expanding effort to help soon-to-be veterans as the American military downsizes with the end of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Airborne soldiers in maroon berets and corporals in camouflage uniforms prepared for the end of their military careers by meeting civilian employers, learning to interview and write resumes and scouting the benefits available to veterans starting the rest of their lives.
