Warrior Transition Panels: Expanding across the Nation, Influencing Careers

The Greater Kansas City Post Warrior Transition Committee continues to make significant progress assisting military members in transition.  This concept, which began in April 2014, has been sustained at Fort Riley, Kansas since inception and also expanded locally to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri.  Given the larger numbers of transitioning military personnel at Fort Riley, the installation has been fully engaged by hosting three to five panels annually. 


In addition to the exceptional success locally, our Warrior Transition Panel concept has been embraced by three SAME Posts located near two major military installations.  The Mount Tacoma and Seattle Posts have partnered with the 555th Engineer Brigade at Joint Base Lewis McChord (near Tacoma, Washington), hosting panels in both May and October 2016 (95 total attendees).  Likewise, the Pike’s Peak Post has partnered with the 52nd Engineer Battalion at Fort Carson, Colorado and completed their first panel (52 attendees) in March 2017.  Key to these successful panels has been the personal engagement of SAME Post and military leaders, including retired Army Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Chuck Markham (Past President) and LTC Geoff Kuhlmann (555th  Engineer Brigade Deputy Commander and Post President)  of the Mount Tacoma Posts, retired LTC Kevin Stoll of the Seattle Post as well as Cindy Lincicome (Rocky Mountain Regional Vice President) of the Pike’s Peak Post and LTC Brian Brobeck, Battalion Commander of the 52nd Engineer Battalion.  Retired Colonel Tony Hofmann helped coordinate all of these panels, with local Posts providing personnel and logistics to make these a success.
